Notes for Identification:

Lime Green Haworthia (Haworthia truncata)  is a clustering succulent with thick, truncated leaves that fan open like the pages in a book. The squat leaves are lime and chartreuse, making the plant a major conversation piece. The tips of the leaves are like windows looking into the green jelly inside. 
Repotting: Must be repotted frequently, because every year a part of their roots die and then rots in the pot. Needs a deep pot to accommodate the long, thick, contractile roots
