    Love the splendens most of all, and I don't have one!

    And your third from the bottom, Howard. I know it may be pointless to ask for ID but I'm coveting one like that too.

    Howard's third from bottom is H. 'Mirror Ball'

    Deborah: Kohler is wrong. They are trying to think ahead to allow room for plumber hands to tighten junk and leaking clips. A 27" sink undermounts into a 27" cabinet if the sink is strapped, not clipped or blocked, in place. Plenty of room under a sink for tightening. Hercules Universal Sink Harness or Sink Straps. You can believe Kohler or you can believe a guy who has done this thousands of times and has pictures to prove it. I put a 33" sink into a 27" cabinet last month.

    What sport ? That is how you figure out the size for instance a basketball court needs to be a specific size so 91x49x 22' I doubt the OP intends on hosting NBA / NFL / NHL games in this "indoor sport court". Therefore, a basketball court does NOT need to be 91x49x22. I'm sure the OP is simply wanting a reasonable space for kids to be active during inclement weather. Where they can shoot some hoops, throw a ball, hit a wiffle ball, play kickball, ect.

    Stacey, function should take the lead every time. I'm so glad you are receiving the benefit of function! And you know what I think about this bench. I love it. I love the texture contrast and the color contrast. I love that the legs repeat the bed frame and the seat repeats the floor and window shades. But that doesn't mean that you or someone else might discover an even better option. What do you and hubby think?

    Butting in again with more silly questions:

    When you all sow haw seeds, is fungicide a good idea? How long do you all keep the seedlings covered..? Do you just leave the seedlings atop the soil and then put some sand over?

    I had Mirror Ball in my STC list and kept missing it. What happened that you have so many, Matthew---did you trip over a troll mound of it or something!

    Christina: prophylactic use of fungicide is not a good idea, I am told; they supposedly inhibit germination. I didn't bother with it since I generally don't bother with additional steps unless absolutely, blindingly necessary (for example, actually sowing the seeds). I left the seeds on top of the substrate I used (akadama fines, in this case) and put the whole pot in a zip bag. Didn't even sterilize. The dots were out in two weeks and the pot is out of the bag and out in the yard in the shade. If they die, oh well. Wimps.

    Okay, one pic....Renny calls this one "Tsuru Pika" which she describes as "XXL grower". It made me laugh so I got one. lol Not really presentable yet. Her specimen is easily three times the size of this offset.

    Okay, two pics....someone asked for a wimii earlier? This one is a cross between a beueri as one parent and a complex splendens-picta-wimii hybrid:

    Pagan I love the little teeth on "Tsuru Pika".

    I finally got around to take some pictures of a few of the hawthies with my macro lens and "real" camera... Yay.

    renny's...

    picta

    My very first Haworthia, & one of my favorites... had her ~2 years now. Tag just said cooperi.

    I am excited for this Cymbiformes variagted pup, it looks like it has a lot more variegation than the mom. I keep seeing "stable variegation" mentioned, what does that refer to?

    Thanks Pagan, I always like to hear others experiences. I like your way of sowing! Sounds like what I would do, but I am only receiving about 10 seeds so I think chance of failure will be a lot higher for me...!
    How are the seedlings now? Which ones are wimps? :)

    Gabby - Just curious which lens you've gone to for macro?

    Going to South Africa would be fantastic. I would bring home so many plants with me. Haworthia and so many others!

    Matthew - Great share of photos! I like the look of that H. atrofusca.

    I had to look that one up. It's a Canon! No wonder it didn't ring a bell. I don't think I've even touched a Canon SLR.

    I like the atrofusca as well. It's one of those haworthias that supposedly you have to dig out to see. Makes me wonder how far I can push these things in cultivation to encourage that kind of growth. Initially I thought of huge containers and communal planting. But I lost my original rationale lol

  • ewwmayo

    Pagan - I'm also a Nikon shooter. But I do have a Canon camera as well, haha.

    Howard - What was the first plant you had posted? Emelyae major JDV 95/23? Those truncata are beautiful, especially the one in the 6th photo. And what is the venusta hybrid? It looks nice and big!

    Kevin, that Haworthia mutica silviana (81280) looks pretty cool.I'm totally partial to retuse haworthias, obviously.

    I got a hand-me-down Nikon kit from my brother when I was in high school so that pretty much sealed it for me. By the time I could afford to buy my own kit, I had this whole bag of Nikon lenses already lol

    Christina! Here are my seedlings today. I'll take better photos if the sun ever shows up this weekend.

    I think about half of the seeds I sowed have not come up.

  • Royals fan-MO6a

    I think this is my only one that I haven't posted earlier, I think in the first haw thread. This is a common one, but I didn't have one until now and I'd never seen one this tiny.

    Haworthia reinwardtii

    I plan to head to the nursery tomorrow so who knows what I might come home with? They don't carry rare ones but since I don't have many to start with, I might find something that I like and don't have. Meg

  • Pagan

    Rare shmare. That reinwardtii of yours is beautiful, Meg. It is rare to see it so plump and happy as they tend to get neglected.

    "Head to the nursery"...hehe. More ominous words were never spoken.

    Christina, what seeds are you expecting and from where.... Ken?

    Not to steal anyone's thunder but here are some new ones for me.

    And some older ones.

  • Christina Bay Area

    Yes, from Ken! buying just 7 seeds was probably not a good start but I really wanted to try it out while trying to keep the spending down.
    bayeri x blue haze is what I got

    Cajole? You mean, actually expend effort? Hi, have you met me? lol

    Nah. I'll deal with whatever comes up for as long as they'll survive with tolerable amounts of effort. I don't even know what to do with these things if they survive long enough. There's definitely a Haworthia sylviae x emelyae in your futures, everyone.

  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI
    7 years ago

    Me.... I would love one, please.


    I'm getting Haworthia picta 'Robert' x picta 'Teresa', Haworthia 'Eva' x obtusa Giant and Haworthia bayeri x 'Blue Haze'. I am really hoping for 100% germination on the first two.



  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI
    7 years ago

    Kevin, sorry I didn't mean to ignore your query about an earlier post. The first one is Haworthia laeta, which is probably a splendens or picta and the vendor has it misnamed. The venusta hybrid is Haworthia Shirayuki-Emaki (80998) and the truncata is Haworthia R2.

    @Pagan: Oooh... plant mail?

    I should've known better than to ask if you were going to cajole anything LOL! I take the same approach for most of my collection. Let us know how your seedlings do later on. :)

    I regretted not purchasing Haworthia picta 'Robert' x picta 'Teresa'... next time maybe. It'll be a miracle if I get all 7 seeds to germinate as a first time sower!

  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI

    Christina, I don't think success at this has anything to do with being a "first timer" or a seasoned professional. I think the operative here is, "Better lucky than good."



  • ewwmayo
    7 years ago

    Howard - No problem. =) My 'Maughamutica' (81328) wasn't doing that great for a long time. I'm gone the green route until it's more resilient:

    Ycloh - Some species are a bit more closed in than others. This is Haworthia 'scottii' (81104). If they are dehydrated they close up a little.

    Meg - I've been eyeing a very similar mini reinwardtii many times like yours in the greenhouse. Still resisting! The one I saw turn quite dark green/purple under higher light. Not sure what yours will do but it looks nice.

    As for seeds... my newest ones have not germinated yet. But like Howard, I am happy to share ones from last year, haha.

  • Christina Bay Area

    last modified: 7 years ago

    Good point Howard. Lets hope we both hit the jackpot with Ken's seedlings. :)

    Nice seedling pictures Kevin! It must be so rewarding to start from seed. I want to try lithops...eventually. And plus, with lithop seeds, you get more bang for the buck, if successful germination (of more than 1 lol)! In my area, a nice one could go for $8+...

    My seeds arrive tomorrow!!! Or so I'm told by USPS...

    Me in a few days, watching my seeds: The GIF doesn't work on here, but if you've seen this movie... you'll know. :)

    I've been waiting for this one to become available at AL: Haworthia reticulata var. hurlingii

    Just returned from a VERY successful (although my wallet says something else) trip to "Haworthia Walhalla", i.e. the nurseries of Ingo Breuer, and Thorsten & Imri: 43 new haworthias....

    Pictures of individual plants will follow at some time. Not all in one go, don't worry. The Other Half managed to sneak that red coarctata in in the back on the right.

    This was the haworthia section:

    Sorry, no other pictures of the nursery. I was in there for nearly 2 hours just choosing, taking pictures would have taken at least another 2 hours. I also skipped the rest of the place (sulcorebutias, aloes, mesembs etc), simply because I didn't wanted to be tempted to buy any more (not this time any way).

  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI
    7 years ago

    Pagan, both are very nice. I like the reticulata very much. Yours looks so much different than mine, but the reason for this is the person from whom I got it may be very wrong with the name.


    This is cute little devil!


  • Royals fan-MO6a

    I came home from the nursery with one Haworthia. I immediately liked the looks of it, but I would imagine that when it goes back to being green eventually, it will resemble a retusa, correct? Meg

    Meg: Hmm..Right now, its windows are kind of small to be retusa or mutica. In fact, it looks kinda chocolatey. Let's see what happens to it in your care.

    Doc, the two plants look nothing alike! Mine is a rooted offset. Maybe your source had it crossed with something else because it did retain some of the dots.

    And don't you just love all the turgida types!

    Minty: I wondered about that too. Connie has demonstrated remarkable restraint---I was expecting at least a couple of hundred lol

    Ooof, that looks serious, Doc. I haven't seen that before. This is
    from indoor light straight into sun? I mean, what conditions can do this
    to a haworthia? I've scorched some before but never quite that badly.

    BTW, Conny! I want #9. These wimiis are something else.

    Someone else will have to chime in for you, Michael. I've never
    bought haworthia seeds. They take too long to show proof of provenance,
    I'm not sure I'll want anyone's seeds unless I know them personally, as
    well as their pollinating practice. But Mesa Garden sells some!

    And you're one of those people whose haworthias look like dessert! I want that~
