Haworthia Retusa is a small dark green succulent with recurved thick fleshy leaves. The tips of their leaves are each uniquely marked with white delicate stripes. An interesting variety to collect, with over 60 species. If exposed to full sun it will develop a copper tint. Haworthia leaves have leaf windows to let sunlight in to produce energy to grow. The rosettes are star shaped and stemless. A great plant to grow in wide shallow planters. They easily reproduce multiple clumps of babies in their growing season.
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 have just received and repotted my succulent from you. As expressed before, your packaging and shipment of all elements of my order was very effective in protecting the plants. Each plant is unique, appears to be healthy, and I am anxious to follow the day-to-day growth of these beauties.
Looking forward to this little guy growing. Very healthy looking on arrival.
Excelent service arrive b/4.expected in very good condition
I love the unusual succulents from Succy.
He’s a cute little cutting. He arrived looking a little stressed, no roots, but as of last night (two was later) I can see a tiny little root forming. I’m so excited!!
I'm a cacti/succulent guy from way back. I really like these little plants.
