H. outeniquensis is smaller, compact plant, slowly proliferous. It has pale yellowish green color with slightly cartilaginous leaf margins. In brighter light the pellucid markings become more translucent and the opaque venation becomes reddish in color. It is similar to H. heroldia, which grows not far away to the east, but H. heroldia is much more robust and has thicker leaves. Another "close" relative could be H. monticola, but the difference is that the leaves are pellucid to translucent, fimrer in texture and not incurved at the tips.
