One of my succulents that I purchased at the 2010 Philadelphia Flower Show has bloomed. It's always interesting to see what you'll get when that happens.
I believe this is Haworthia fasciata. Definitely a Haworthia, probably fasciata because it is a common houseplant, and the white tubercles are on the outsides of the leaves but not the insides. If they were on the insides as well it would be Haworthia attenuata.
In August it shot out some long, leggy stems, a typical form for many succulents.
And the blossoms? Dainty little white things with maroon stripes. There is a lot of variation in the leaves of Haworthias, but if you have a plant and it blooms and has flowers with three petals up, three down and the stripes, you can be pretty sure it's some Haworthia.
