Bonus plant


I bought some plants, mostly hibiscus and a red lemon, and received a bonus plant. It needed to be kept dry during the winter, so I put it under the grow light. It soon sent up a flower stalk that has begun to open. The flowers, while not bright or large, are still an unusual shape.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise what plant this is, even though it has suffered a name change and is now Haworthiopsis attenuate, or Haworthia.

Thanks. I'm not the most enthusiastic house plant person, but the structure of the flower is fascinating.
