Just over a year ago I was given this Haworthia by a GW member by the name of Cactus Cathy in a trade. Since that time this little pup has become kind of a sore point for me.
The reason being is that the darn thing won't grow! It won't grow but it won't die either. I've spent a year trying to persuade it to grow some roots and it's done nothing. I've tried water, sunlight, fertilizer, rooting hormone and everything I could think of and yet it's sat there dormant refusing to grow or do much for the past year.
About a month I decided I'd leave it completely alone and set it in a corner of my plant shelf half hoping it would just die on me and then it started to send up that long shoot you see in the picture. I've never seen a Haworthia flower in person but I think it's trying to flower now. It has had the same tiny roots trying to grow since I got it. I really like Haworthias and I was glad to get this little pup from Cathy but I'm at a loss of what to do with it other than let it do it's thing.
If you'd like to get a white background in your images I described how I'm doing it in this blog entry of this blog.
