Our plants are propagated from GM 515B, collected near Cathcart in the Eastern Cape Province. H. bolusii var. blackbeardiana is much wider distributed than the type species and has much larger individuals. Similar to H. cooperi, which grows in the same area, but Haworthia bolusii var. blackbeardiana has denser spines and longer and flatter leaves. These plants are seedlings in 3-inch pots.
