Gardeners' Notes:

On Jan 27, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- One of the odd things about Haworthia limifolia limifolia is that its pups come up at a distance from the mother plant, sometimes up to a foot away. This Haworthia grows quite well in my garden, both in the ground and in pots. Some of my plants receive water every 2 weeks, but most get only once-a-month water in summer. However, even the potted plants have gone 2 months in summer without water and were fine. All of these watering regimes seem to suit H. l. limifolia. Most of my plants receive no winter protection except for downed tree leaves, and have survived into the lower 20s F.

To me this is one of the more attractive common Haworthias and is pretty easy to grow outdoors in zone 10 (actually I live in a zone sort of between 9b and 10, but does fine here). It seems pretty oblivious to overwatering, something that does most Haworthias in from my experience. Yet this one eats it up. More water, more growth. Relatively fast growing plant, it has wonderful symmetry and thick, durable rough-textured leaves with linear ridges along them. Does well in low light situations as well as mod sun (doesn't seem to like full sun here in inland southern CAlifornia- burns too easily).

This is the common plant found in Wal-mart, Low's, Armstrong's it has been around for years, and years, it is still a nice house plant, or in open run if you live in zone 10 or milder. It comes from So. Africa (Natal,Transvaal), Swaziland

There are another 2,000+ species and varieties that I know of and I will only list those which I think you can find.

Highlights

Haworthiopsis limifolia var. keithii (Smith): No longer a recognized name, but a lovely plant nonetheless. Similar to Fairy Washboard with raised, green ridges banding the foliage. Tends to have more slender leaves and show a paler green tone than the type species.

Haworthia are able to tolerate low, indoor light, making them excellent houseplants, even for beginners. They are particularly easy to grow and rarely affected by common succulent pests and diseases. Strong, drought-tolerant roots will grow if they have great drainage and infrequent water. Pick deep containers with drainage holes and a gritty, well-draining soil that is 50% to 70% mineral grit (coarse sand, pumice, or perlite). Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole and allow the soil to completely dry before watering again.

This genus tolerates high heat by slowing down and eventually going dormant in the peak of summer. This means that, unlike other succulents, it is important not to over-water or fertilize during summer dormancy. Haworthia are slow growers and tend to stay small in pots, but they will produce new offsets in clumps around their bases. These offsets can be left to develop into a dense clump or pulled off and transplanted.
