Haworthia pulchella var. globifera is a stemless leaf succulent that forms clumps of leaf rosettes; a rosette growing to about 4 cm in diameter.
The leaves are lance-shaped, tapering to acutely pointed tips. The leaf is about flat on its upper surface, the lower one convex and smooth. Leaf colour is dark green, the bases of some of these rosettes cultivated indoors are cream. Leaves become about 27 mm long, 7 mm broad and 1,5 mm thick.
The inflorescence reaches 33 cm in height; the simple raceme 10 cm long, carrying about 12 flowers, spirally arranged. Only one or two flowers open at the same time. The white flowers have brown segment keels. Flowering happens in early summer.
The distribution is in the Western Cape in the vicinity of the Anysberg. The habitat is rock crevices where the plants grow in the shade of dry scrub. This species is rare, its population in habitat stable early in the twenty first century (http://haworthia-gasteria.blogspot.co.za; www.redlist.sanbi.org).
