Group of Haworthias
Like Aloes and Gasterias, Haworthias are members of the Lily family and come from the southern parts of Africa. Most form stemless rosettes of leaves, though some do have leaved branches. The plants pictured are not large, but still show a selection of the forms in cultivation. Depending upon growing conditions, particularly light intensity, many Haworthias can colour up quite considerably, turning reddish or brown and developing very attractive patterns on the leaves. Some growers specialise in Haworthias, though it must be said that they are grown for their body forms and not for their flowers.
