Haworthia glauca

Haworthia glauca, N. Fullarton
Haworthia glauca Baker

glauca: glaucous, powdery, bluish-green.



H. glauca is stem forming, growing in clumps, it has glaucous, incurved, grey-green leaves. In natural habitats H. glausa is growing very often exposed on sun on the rock slopes or under the weak protection of bushes.

The full distribution is not yet known. H. glauca occurs from Zuurberg in the East to Fullarton and Paardepoort in the West. This species is much variable. The stem stems of the plants are usually well-developed, the leaves may be erect or spreading and tuberculate even if only slightly so.




Distribution map
The form with tubercles was described as var. herrei - and I agree with Ingo Breuer, that this variety should be covered under the name H. glauca, because the differences in spreading leaves and geographic criterion are often not present.

In cultivation H. glauca is an easy plants, propagation can be done by offsetts.
