Window Plant Haworthia Blooms

My haworthia is blooming. It sends up these sci-fi looking stalks that open into tiny white flowers. It took so long for my first plants to bloom that now I get excited to see them in the early spring.

I just love these succulent little gems and this plant seems to have developed a cult following among succulent gardeners.

Haworthia succulent plants have fat, short leafs with stripes or dots on the outside and jelly-like leaf centers.

This guy has been outside in the shade. It's looking a little light in color, normally it's a darker green. I'm putting him in dappled shade to see if it gets darker.
