I am a Haworthia lover, now living in the San Francisco Bay area. I got my collection started with a local succulent show & sale in Santa Clara. I was really fascinated by the variety of forms, texture, and colors of Haworthias, and brought back home a beautiful H. cv. ‘Cuspidata’ f. variegata. Since then, I have been visiting nurseries and growers in all around California and Arizona for obtaining more of them. My collection is not huge yet, but I am sure that it will keep growing!
