Haworthia reddii C.L.Scott

reddii: for Dr V.B.Reddi.

H. reddii is a smaller compact species, very proliferous, easily forming large clusters. The colour is light green to darker green. Some plants have distinctive transculent markings and dots on the leaves and can vary in size. This species is possibly intermediate between H. cymbiformis and H. marumiana var. batesiana.

Distribution map

H. reddii is known from only several localities near Waterdown dam and near Turnstream. Plants from Turnstream are simililar to Smith H. lepida from The Fort, which grows further to the south.

H. reddii can be easily propagated from offsetts and in cultivation it makes no troubles and very quickly large pot will be filled in.
