Haworthia Specialties
Haworthia Banner
A selection of very special Haworthias, many from the collection of David Martin in Colorado. Unless otherwise indicated, all are seed grown and most have seed collection data. The plant name on the left (if underlined) provides a link to a photo (but the photo is not necessarily the specific plant being sold). The ø symbol indicates approximate diameter and the ~ symbol indicates "aproximately". Otherwise the size refers to the size of the pot. (This page was updated February 2015. However, due to limited availability, it's advisable to ask before ordering.) Haworthias are separated into 3 subgenera, and this division is about as important as the species designation. Most fall into the subgenus "Haworthia"; those which are of either of the other subgenera are so indicated.
