Tulista pumila "donuts", two siblings

Description: "Donuts" is a trait bred by Mabel and other breeders. The normally white tubercles on Tulista pumila form a donut shape in plants with this trait. It likely is the result of a timing issue of when the tubercles are made relative to the growth rate and expansion of the leaves.  We are happy to offer these donut seedlings made by crossing together two donuts plants in our collection. Note: The seedlings in the picture are representative seedlings. The seedlings you will get will be very similar. All are about the same size or larger and starting to show donut tubercles.  

Prickly Pete breeding program: 

I have been hybridizing Haworthia for  20 years. Most of my hybrids are multi-generational complex hybrids created from carefully selected parental stock. I breed to intensify and combine leaf and window coloration, leaf texture and leaf shape traits. 

Leaf coloration is influenced by the interaction of the pigmentation of the leaf and the coloration and the windows. The windows can be clear or can have spots which vary in size. In hybrids the spotting often turns the entire window opaque. I strive for obtaining reds, pink, purple, orange, phosphorescent green and iridescent blue.

Leaf texture can be smooth or bumpy or bristly. In some of my hybrids I get red colored spines and bumps.

Haworthia can have many variations in leaf shape. I use plants like truncata in my breeding to introduce variations in leaf shape.

In 2005 I started numbering my crosses to keep track of them. So my numbers are labeled as PP#. For each PP cross there will be multiple siblings, all genetically unique individuals that will express slightly different traits. Therefore you will be obtaining a one-of-a-kind plant that no one else has. I hope you take good care of it. The seedlings will change as the age and pigmentation will usually intensify over time.
