Haworthia retusa

(This plant comes in a 3.5" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Description: Haworthia retusa is a well-known succulent with shiny, green star-shaped rosettes. The top surface of its leaves is smooth, with nearly translucent "windows" and veining, giving a very odd look to the plant.

Blooming time: In late spring to summer.

Note: Of interest to botanists are the translucent windows that illuminate the interior photosynthetic areas of the leaves. These are called "window leaves" and represent a xerophytic adaptation.
