Haworthia

Haworthia are native to South Africa, mostly with thick fleshy leaves filled with a translucent jelly and formed into a rosette. They vary greatly in size, colour (usually green, but sometimes brownish) and form. Many have attractively patterned leaves. Flowers are small, white and bell-shaped on long stems.

CULTIVATION TIPS
Spring / autumn growers. Haworthias are dormant over summer when they need only occasional spraying. During this time they renew their roots and prolonged moisture can lead to rotting. They do best in deep pots that accommodate their thick fleshy roots. Shade / filtered sun.
