    As the title suggests I recently bought this succulent plant from the store, but it wasn't named. Does anyone know what it is (not the one in the background; that's my aloe plant)?

    Haworthia pumila. I'm pretty sure....I've been wrong before though!

    Sorry Galiano, but surely not Haworthia... because this plant is thorny, H. pumila is just warty, without thorns... (Haworthias are usually warty (or hairy, like H. arachnoidea), their "hungarian" name is also: wartylily...)

    I'd agree with a young Aloe ferox a definite cross if it's sending up pups already, although they could be a couple of seedlings planted together.

    It certainly resembles my A.ferox, the leaves are a bit paler and longer and thinner on yours though (than mine)...so its either a cross or needs more light!

    I stand corrected. I will put this info in the memory bank.
