Haworthias are a slow growing compact genus of succulents for more shaded environements and will do exceptionally well indoors. Most grow to 8 to 10cm across. All varieties produce numerous offsets and form small clusters.
Position - partial shade; great in gardens, protected borders, rockeries or pots. Indoors only in well-lit positions. Some varities can live in low light for extended periods and make one of the hardiest of all house plants. In low light the will elongate.
Watering - can be watered all year round and grows most of the year. Plants will survive without water for many months but will lose condition and take time to recover.
Feeding - 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing period. The less food, the better the shape of the plant. Fertilisers high in nitrogen can produce larger plants with less colour.
Repotting - can be left to overgrow their pots, or repotted in the warmer months in almost any well drained potting mix.
