Collection: Haworthia Succulents

General Haworthia Facts

Haworthia is a large genus of small succulent plants from the Xanthorrhoeaceae family. The genus itself is named after the botanist Adrian Hardy Haworth. The plants generally resemble miniature aloes except in their flowers which are very distinct. Their variety in appearance, from darker greens with firm leaves to lighter greens and featuring "leaf windows", has helped them become a popular garden and container plant

Examples of Common Haworthia Succulent Plants

Common Haworthias include Haworthia Zebra, Haworthia Turgida, Haworthia Venosa Tesselata, Haworthia Cymbiformis, Haworthia Star Cactus. It'd be surprising if we ever had a day where we carried none of these!

Regions that Haworthia Succulents Come From

Haworthias are native to Southern Africa.

Why We Love Haworthia Succulents at Succy Crafts

So many of these little guys are just so cool, especially those with the "leaf windows" such as the Haworthia Turgida and the Haworthia Cymbiformis. These make an excellent addition to any garden, even some kids might find an interest in gardening or plants due to how cool these are! However, that isn't to say that the Haworthias without the "leaf windows" are lacking, far from it. The Haworthia Zebra gives off an exotic look that draws the eye, looking both alien and earthly at the same time! 

Haworthia Succulent Care Tips

These little suckers are pretty easy to take care of, but that doesn't mean we don't have some tips for you. Firstly, these little guys are native to Southern Africa, meaning that they like it hot, so if you're not in any of the USDA 9, 10 or 11 zones, they might not do so well outdoors. Try to keep them by a window with a "cactus mix" in a shallower container since their roots don't tend to dig too deep. Make sure to keep them in a brighter area but with some protection from the hottest rays for the day and water them weekly during the summer or whenever the top of the soil is dry. During the winter, don't water them more than once a month. 

As for the "leaf windowed" variants, the above is also applicable, but make sure keep your succy in a warmer (70-90F) area for the best growth. In addition, make sure to fertilize once in the spring and once in the fall.
