Haworthia unicolor
Haworthia unicolorTypical Haworthia flowers
Haworthia unicolor is an example of those Haworthias which have soft leaves and tend to clump readily. The rosettes of this type are often protected by an outer layer of dead leaves, many of them clump readily. The lower part of two flower spikes can be seen coming from the centre of the rosettes. These are typical of Haworthia flowers which are produced on long stalks and are not very showy - indeed many growers pull off the spikes without waiting for the flowers. The picture on the right illustrates a typical Haworthia inflorescence (it is actually from H. emelyae v sandkraal, but even experts would have virtually no chance of identifying it).
