Hi all,
This mystery succulent has sadly been neglected for some time. Can anyone identify it? I am guessing some type of Haworthia, but unsure which variety? I would love to learn more about it and care for it properly! Hurray!
Thank you!

Its a small image, so its either an aristata hybrid, or gasteraloe royal highness.

Hi & welcome!

Also compare to Haworthia radula. Some pics here to get started:
Haworthiopsis attenuata var. radula

Whichever it is, it doesn't look unhealthy or struggling.

I can't really suggest a name. Maybe with time it will be easier to ID the plant. Flowers might make a difference.

For what it's worth, plants like that with the raised white patterns tend to enjoy the same general features in cultivation. Strong light but not a lot of direct overhead sun (as an indoor plant, the most light possible). Excellent drainage (a soil mix with 50% perlite, pumice or equivalent). Water well when the soil is dry at depth, not necessarily leaving it bone dry for any extended periods. The plant could use a bigger pot for now, like 6 inches (I'm guessing that's a 3-4 inch pot) but make sure it is wider than deep (or underfill if deep is your only option for the pot).

Thanks to all for the input on this one! It's in a 2"x2" square pot. Went looking for a pot today but haven't found a suitable one yet. I was concerned that it wasn't doing well because of the discoloration on the inside, but that seems to be resolving and the plant seems to be getting "plumper" overall. Here is a larger image of that helps.

I agree with Tiffany it is a straight up Haworthia.
It is what it is!
