    Why all the photos of charcoal briquettes? Planning a 4 July BBQ?

    seems like it! actually, yours looks a lot more compact. im currently growing two different clones, one with elongated leaves, and another with more compact leaves. personally i like the compact one much more. i saw you also have the "white christmas" truncata.... must have cost an arm and a leg!

    heres a few more:

    Actually I haven't received the plant yet. Just bought it the end of week.
    Price wasn't bad, although, it tiny. From the pictures it looks like maybe the size of a pencil eraser / pea, and showing no other color the green. I'm guessing it will color when it gets larger....I hope. It's attached to the variegated leaf it was started from.

    ah....

    so here's the thing, the majority of haworthia variagates are quite unstable-- there are only a handful of cultivars in which the variegation carries over consistently from offset to offset. the majority produce a crapshot with everything in between-- non-variegated, mildly variegated, highly variegated, and chlorophyll free. just be wary of those selling you the non-variegated offsets while claiming it to be the variegated deal--they are significantly cheaper for a reason. likewise, dont go for the sparsely chlorophyll offsets either--there is a chance that the plant will no longer produce leaves with chlorophyll; once the leaves with chlorophyll die, the entire plant will follow suite.

    here's what im talking about:

    pygmaea 'tiger' non-variegated offset:


    pygmaea 'tiger' - actually variegated


    haworthia with no chlorophyll- must stay anchored to the mother plant or it dies.



    that being said, non-variagated offsets from a variegated parent do have a higher chance of possibly producing a variegated plant than a normal type plant with no variegated history, but we're talking about 1 in 100 vs 1 in 1000 odds.
