The plump, almost translucent foliage clusters together to form a handsome rosette that grows up to 8cm across. There are 20-25 leaves per rosette.
Haworthia ‘Obtusa’ has occasional flowers in spring and summer. The white, daisy like blooms don't last very long though, but the foliage is handsome year round.
Haworthia are rarely bothered by pests and require no fuss. Their swollen leaves are designed to store water, this enables them to withstands long, dry periods. The variation in forms and texture (which developed mostly to protect themselves from predators) is a gardener’s delight.
Haworthia are easy to grow, you just need to treat them as you would any succulent.
