Just sharing some of the haworthia cooperi that I have had for a while. And also curious about the naming system for this particular species as I read somewhere that haworthia cooperi is synonymous with h pilifera/cooperi var obtusa. So am hoping to clarify which is the proper naming system for this.

Haworthia cv Mirror Ball:

Very nice! I have H. cymbiformis, but it was out a bit late and is looking a bit rough, so a pic will have to wait until after it grows a bit this summer:blush:. It also has those wild transparent tips.

Humongous fan of Haworthias, mimicry plants in general, and especially fond of anything with translucent window leaves. Those are gorgeous plants and photos (great backlighting!). Thanks for sharing!

Cool! Especially cv Mirror Ball. Like everyone else, I think those windowed Haworthia are just great

I see them everywhere. Supermarkets, Lowes Home Depot, garden centers, etc.

I see them at my local home depot from time to time but they are usually attenuata or something similar, which i dont find too interesting. Granted, the Home Depot by me is a small one, more like an ace hardware on steroids. They also have those 'cosmic' painted plants that I would personally never buy. Ill keep my eyes open though.

There should be a lot of sources in the US. A few online nurseries are also based there, such as Aridlands

There's also Renny's Haworthias (www.maughanii.com, Renny&apos;s Online Haworthia Shop), though my issue is (besides the price) that a lot of the sales items are tiny offsets. I usually buy from a local collector as they tend to be already acclimatised to my local climate

Wonderful! Windowed hawthoria are just great.

I know you posted this a few months ago, so not sure if you've found anything already. I'd start looking online. Ebay has some from time to time, and then there are some other stores I recently found in my search, like
Home
and
Glasshouse Works: Rare & Exotic Plants

that I recently ordered from out of curiosity. I am waiting for my orders to arrive, so I can't quite speak for quality yet, but the price was right, so I jumped on it.
Other than that, the one I have was a lucky find from a local greenhouse. I hope you get lucky enough to grow one of these guys one day, they're pretty easy and so gosh darn lovely.
