Haworthia pehlemanniae

H. pehlemanniae, Laingsburg

Haworthia pehlemanniae C.L.Scott
pehlemanniae: for Inge Pehlemann.

H. pehlemanniae
is growing around Laingsburg. Vegetatively it reminds H. arachnoidea var. scabrispina, which is growing in some cases nearby at the same locality, but it has more greyish color. It occurs on shale in relatively exposed situations as opposed to H. arachnoidea
var. scabrispina, which generally prefers cooler south slopes. Form from Koup Station was described by Hayashi as H. albispina. It grows virtually together with scabrispina, it is same "hard on touch", but the flowers are same as H. pehlemanniae. It is much more whitish, when scabrispina in age is becoming more yellowish.
