Re The New Haworthia Handbook.
A very good book for the normal collector of succulents in South Africa where most of these plants come from.When buying plants from a nursary or garden shop,the label normaly say's Haworthia Succulent,or more often just Succulent.
A very good book for my collection and it has helped me identify quite a number of plants.
Great book and reference, though the name 'New' is a bit inappropriate now (just got this book 2008 and already a bit outdated taxanomically). Covers every species imaginable (including some that are no longer considered separate species) with photographs of each in the wild or cultivation. Photographs are grouped in clumps on color plates added to the volume after printing, so not always near the discussion of each species unfortunately. But the cost is more than worth it. There are newer texts on Haworthias in publication now, but this one is still hard to beat in terms of cost and coverage of the material. It is a tad technical as it is primarily designed as a guide rather than general text on Haworthias. Still, extremely useful volume for the serious succulent collector.
