A fresh take on an old favourite. The plump, clumping foliage is a comely combination of greens that look like the skin of a watermelon. A great potted feature plant.
These gorgeous evergreens are undemanding and long lived. The small plant size makes them just right for pots, both indoors and out. The variation in forms and texture of this diverse species were developed mostly to protect themselves from predators, are a gardener’s delight.
Haworthia are rarely bothered by pests and require no fuss. Once established, this Haworthia will slowly multiply with offsets or ‘pups’. The most important thing to remember with Haworthias is not to water them! Over watering, especially during dormancy will cause the plant to rot, their swollen leaves are designed to store water, this enables them to withstands long, dry periods.
