Haworthias are an interesting variety to collect, with over 60 known species. Haworthia leaves have leaf windows to let sunlight in to produce energy, and also use them to store water for long periods of time. The rosettes are lime green, chubby, round and stemless. If exposed to full sun they will develop a red tint. A great plant to grow in wide shallow planters. They easily reproduce multiple clumps of babies in their growing season that spread up to 6" wide.
Native to: South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, and Mozambique

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

I really loved how well my purchase was packed. They arrived intact and ready to pot.
Fell in love with the group of Haworthias that have those kind of see through windows... the tiny Cymbiformis has several pups, and is doing great. Just like my first one, the mighty Cooperi! She is huge, badly needs a repotting, but I’m scared. She’s so beautiful, and surrounded by probably 50 pups. What if I massacre my star succy???
I love Haworthias, I think it's safe to say they're my favorite plants to care for. Then there's TRANSLUCENT ONES?? amazing. I want so many more, seeing the light shine through the little "windows" brings me great joy. I love these plants!!!
Looks very cool and came healthy
Unfortunately due to the holidays it took twice as long to get here but thankfully due to the amazing packaging job it survived the long trip! It's perfect! Cannot wait to order more!
