A friend and I stopped by a really big and beautiful nursery today, and found many succulents...the two I picked out are just like candy to my eye (so I posed them in front of my Halloween candy tonight). I have tried to ID them, and so ...to the best of my ability, I believe they are called (from left to right) Gasteria liliputana AND Haworthia cooperi.
They both have sun damage...were left out in full sun, with little care (full of weeds when I brought them home). Many plants there had died and completely decayed.
The Gasteria definately needs to be repotted...it is so crowded I feel sad for it! I don't actually have a larger pot tonight, or I would not even consider letting this wait...but until tomorrow...
If anyone knows of any other identifying information...please do not hesitate to let me know. I am looking through all my books and finding the closest match to what I see...which, as I have found out in the world of succulents...may be close, or may be a whole other species altogether!! That is the truth. So don't be shy if you have any ideas about them! I appreciate all help I can get from such a knowledgable group as yourselves!!!
The Haworthia has caespitose (growing in small dense clumps or tufts) rosettes 4 cm in diameter; pale green leaves with a long terminal bristle. It should have pinkish white flowers with green veins!
The Gasteria has short stemmed rosettes forming clumps (there are a lot, lot, lot of them in here)...dark green spotted leaves, and it should have RED flowers! I think the bronze colored leaves are either from the full sun beating down on them, or possibly this is a variety of B. bicolor Haworthia. That would be cool...I suppose time will tell.
