  • Haworthia can survive in almost any lighting condition, but to be happiest they need 4-6 hours of bright filtered sunlight per day.
  • Water when the soil is dry. Don't let it get bone dry, but not wet all the time either. Water less is cooler weather.

  • The Haworthia sends of long stalks with small white and green flowers in November and December.
