Haworthia is a large genus of succulents mostly native to South Africa. Succulents are slow growing, drought resistant plants native to dry climates around the world. The term succulent applies to many types of plants that retain water in arid climates and include Cacti, Echeveria, Haworthia, and Gasteria, among others. Haworthia grow in rosette shapes and do well with bright, indirect light (think east or west facing windows) to promote full growth, color retention and avoid stretching.
Haworthia are non-toxic, making them a great option for pet parents with curious animals. These petite plants are wonderful gifts because they are very easy to care for and durable. Succulents all have similar needs, so they are an uncomplicated option for plant parents who want variety and plenty of it with little upkeep. Succulents will best retain their colors and shapes with plenty of access to light. Succulents need a well-draining, sandy potting mix to prevent root rot and should be watered at the base of the plant, as the leaves are susceptible to rotting when exposed to excess moisture left sitting on or within the plant. Allow the soil to dry before watering and keep them away from air conditioning vents.
The Haworthia succulent enjoys bright indirect light. Place in a window filtered by curtains or blinds.
Haworthia succulents are drought tolerant plants. Water approximately once a month with 1 oz. at the base of the plant, allowing the soil to drain and dry completely in between waterings.
Like most other succulents, Haworthia prefer warm temperatures of 75 - 90°F.
Apply a balanced cactus fertilizer to your Haworthia at half strength once every 1 - 3 months during the spring to summer months.
Care Level: Easy-Moderate
Origin: South Africa
Although they thrive in bright indirect light, Haworthia can also tolerate low or artificial light.
As a succulent, they can survive droughts and longer periods of time without water, making them great for beginner plant parents who make forget to water them regularly.
The white spots on their leaves, or pearls, give them their zebra-like appearance.
