Agave victoriae-reginae T.Moore, Gard. Chron. n.s., 4(2): 485 1875. (Syn: Agave victoriae-reginae f. nickelsii Trel.);
Succulent for ID : Flower Show,Mumbai : 011012 : AK-3:
Saw this succulent plant at the Flower Show at Jijamata Udyan in Mumbai last year on 19/2/2011.
A very small, cultivated, potted plant.
could be h turgida?
but dont quote me !!:) 🙂
Howarthias are difficult at best … I find…
one howarthia I thought was one, turned out to be doubtful and still is … as miniature aloe of all things… it flowered and is now dying a slow death…
this one (yours) is definitely not aloe..
but not sure what / how to classify this succulent, most likely a howarthia..
we need an academic expert on cacti…
I also think that it is Hawarthia species..
this is Agave victoriae-reginae
…, you may be quite right…
Absolutely amazing that you could give a name to my unidentified post.
On searching, the id does seem right.
Common names are Queen Victoria Agave or Royal Agave.
Thank you. I have so many Succulents, Cacti and Ornamentals photographed at the Flower Show in Mumbai last two years. Should try posting few of them.

Our ornamental expert, thank you.
I thought it was something similar, but wanted expert validation.

yes most likely
with some mishandling and watering mishaps
Thank you …
Probably the plants are bearing the brunt of being taken around many exhibitions venues….
yes … your guess may be correct
if the owners are addicted to showcasing their plants
