Haworthia -
Haworthia spp.

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

Light

Bright, direct sun to bright indirect light.

Water

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.

EXTRA LOVE

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

Gasteria -
Gasteria spp.

Gasteria, a member of the Aloe family Asphodelaceae, is named after the Latin word for "stomach", because enough scientists thought the flowers looked like a stomach. However most normal people will notice their tongue-like leaves growing in mirror-like distichous patterns. Little-known fact: Gasterias hybridize readily with Aloes and Haworthias.
