If you google for this plant "Haworthia 'Big Band'", you will probably find that most sites say it is Haworthia fasciata which is incorrect. It is actually Haworthia attenuata because H. fasciata does not have the tubercles on the upper parts or the end parts of the leaves. Instead, H. attenuata has the bands/spots on the upper parts of the leaves.
