These hardy succulents can tolerate everything from your fridgid offices to sunny windows. Native to South Africa, a few of these then-unnamed plants were brought to Kew Gardens in London. At Kew, the genus Haworthia is described by 18th and 19th century English botanist (and crab researcher) Adrian Hardy Haworth... who never actually saw a Haworthia in the wild.
The Plant Care
Bright, direct sun to bright indirect light.
Water weekly to semi-monthly. Allow potting mix to completely dry out before watering. The smaller the pot, the faster the soil dries out. If it's in direct sun, it will need more frequent waterings, as the sun will dry it out faster. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot Remember, these are desert plants- they can go for a while without a drink.
The easiest way to kill a Haworthia is to overwater it or leave it wet for too long! Love this one more by tending to it less. #independentplant
