Haworthias are small succulents known best for their exotic façade and striking leaves. They make great indoor plants for window sills, desks, counters, and much more. Lots of Haworthia types are on the market, and you’d see them in different forms and sizes. Some leaves can be long and tapered, or soft, opaque, and fleshy, depending on the variety. Many varieties have hairs, stripes, ridges, or bumps on the leaves that add to their uniqueness.

Plant Type

Cactus & Succulent
Cactus and succulents are plants known for their thickened, fleshy parts that function as water storage. These hardy and low-maintenance plants need little to no attention. 

Plant Feature

These are plants that you do not have to water too often and are excellent in various lighting conditions. This makes them perfect for any room in your house.

Beginner plants are exceptionally forgiving and hardy. They are easy to keep alive and mostly low-maintenance. These are perfect if you have a less-than-green thumb, or just starting to hone your gardening skills.

Light Care

Medium Light
These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.

Water Care

Medium Wate 
Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch. 

Fertilizer Care - Low

These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.



Plant Care Tips

Haworthia are members of the succulent family. They are often found growing under shrubs and in rocky crevices, as they prefer partially shaded areas. Some varieties produce plentiful amounts of pups, which can be removed and transplanted. Like most succulents, they prefer an arid soil, so use our cactus and succulent mix when repotting.


Haworthia are native to southern Africa, with the most diversity existing in South Africa.
