Distribution: Horticultural.


A magnificent cultivar created by Gerhard Marx. As he explains:

Haworthia ‘Pink Nebula’ is the result of crossing H. mutica 'Drew White' ( ‘White Widow’ X H. mutica from Klippoort, Drew) with a rather red cultivar of GM 447 Haworthia splendens ( given the cultivar name ‘Marx Red’ by Dr Hayashi. The latter variety of H. splendens (= H. splendens var masai) grows to an impressive large size and although 'Pink Nebula' lacks the very glossiness of H. splendens, it did inherit the rather large size character.

‘Pink Nebula’ is particularly attractive during spring and fall when the pink colour shows up very bright. During mid winter and mid summer the pink colour seem to fade slightly but it is never completely absent. Like Haworthia cv. 'Aluminum Star' it also develops beautiful downward-curving leaves reminiscent of H. badia to some extent.(See also hybrids article at gerhardmarx.com).
