This looks just like the one I have down as cuspidata and the descriptions are very similar, now I’m confused 🤔🤔

Morning Jane @pelly - technically Haworthia cuspidata is a synonym of Haworthia cymbiformis, the latter being the accepted name but many retailers still use the older synonyms which causes confusion. There are also two separate entries in the GT database which doesn't help either - see this link here http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/record/kew-277091 👍🏼

It's very pretty and unusual Kerry isn't it? I can see where it got its name from 😄 @kez001uk

Thanks Rich, I get so confused with all this, there seem to be quite a few wrongly named plants on here and I like things to be right (I'm sooo not a control freak 😂😂) I'll get my entry altered and I love the Cathedral Window name @richard.spicer.7906 😍😊
