Haworthia chloracantha var. denticulifera (V.Poelln.) M.B.Bayer

denticulifera: bearing small teeth.

H. chloracantha var. denticulifera is small dark green variety with fine spination on the leaves. It is freely offsetting plant, which sometimes form small clusters on the localities. I grows amongst grass or on steep rocky slopes.

Distribution map

Var. denticulifera is growing between Little Brak and Mossel Bay. It occurs along Gouritz river and here it is changing into floribunda var. dentata. I follow Breuer, who puts these form under dentata. Denticulifera is known and common species in cultivation, but it isn´t that easy to find it in nature.

This variety doesn´t need any special conditions to grow. Easiest way of propagation are offsets.
