Haworthia scabra

Distribution: Africa: South Africa: Western Cape: Eastern Cape:


Haworthia scabra grows in mountain crevices in the Little Karoo as well as the Eastern Cape.

The plants often look unkempt, leaves unsymmetrically jammed between stones with half the leaftips broken off. The shaded parts are dark green (in most cases) and the exposed parts brown. The leaves are often incurved.

The plants are very similar to Haworthia tuberculata. but are usually smaller and have shiny and often less pronounced tubercles. The emphasis is on 'usually' as it is often not the case.

For starters I include pictures from two localities in the Schoemanspoort, one from east of Raubenheimer Dam and the other from further north-east en route Cango Caves. I have more images which I shall add at a later date.
