This website is awesome. I live in Southern California and have many "captive" specimens of Gasteria and Haworthia in pots and planters. It's really wonderful to see your photos of their wild cousins free-ranging in their native habitat. Keep up the great work!

Your site is my Bible for Haworthia information. Inclusion of pictures of plants in cultivation and specific features of each genius will further help us identify plants.

Although I live in South Africa I have never seen these plants in the wild. I have lots in containers and cultivate them too. I really enjoyed all you information and it made me understand a lot more!
