    Can anyone name this one, or give a lucky guess if it might be hardy?

    The Teenager got it as a gift, the main attraction being the cute pink pot. I confiscated the plant, chucked it into a spare bowl, put it behind the curtain in the box room and promptly forgot about it. Two years on, I found it (yes, one might consider dusting the windowsills a tad more regularly :redface:) and gave it a drink. Apparently, against all odds, it's alive!

    What should I do with it- add to my hardy succulent collection or grow as a houseplant?

    Thanks!

        It's a Haworthia, and looks very much like H. cuspidata (?)

            Thanks very much, I believe it is indeed Haworthia and apparently is not hardy. I will give it a bit of TLC and see what it decides to become. Anything over being forgotten behind a curtain should count as TLC ;)
