This is a very popular variety, due to the beautiful transparent lens on the tip of the leaves. Each leaf looks like a drop of water. Once the plant grows about 4” in diameter, it starts growing pup clusters.
How do you grow Haworthia Obtusa?
Soil: All Haworthias do not like their roots to remain wet for prolonged periods, so their potting soil should be well-drained. Use a commercial succulent potting mix or make your own. Hardiness: Haworthias like warmer temperatures in the summer but cool in the winter. However, they do not like being too cold.
Does Haworthia need sunlight?
Although some Haworthia species can be found in full, bright sun, many live in more protected spots and therefore are adapted to thrive in partial shade (though few look their best without at least some direct sun or bright light). This makes Haworthias well adapted to lower light conditions found in homes.
How often should I water Haworthia?
Water. Because Haworthia store water so efficiently, they do not need to be watered very often. Only water when the soil has been completely dry for a number of days. This may be every two weeks, or in warmer months or warmer climates, it could be more often.
Can you propagate ?
The propagation of these succulent plants is done at repotting time and taking offsets from the mother plant. Utilize sharp scissors or knife to cut the offsets close to the mother plant.
This unique succulent is one of 60 name Haworthia species and 150 named varieties of succulent in this family.
