Haworthia cymbiformis, native to Cape Province, South Africa, forms star-shaped rosettes with grass-green, extremely succulent leaves. Leaves are obovate, with pointed tips and have delicate dark green veins running into the translucent "windowed" leaf tips. Sometimes confused with Haworthia cuspidata, but Haworthia cymbiformis has longer, tapered leaves and actually has a different appearance if grown in correct light and conditions. Haworthias are winter growers and are dormant in the hottest summer months. Require very porous soil with excellent drainage as many forms have thickened tap roots. Prefer filtered, bright light. Those species with red veining or chocolate faces will exhibit superior color in bright light. All forms that are green, especially included the variegated forms, will prefer filtered light. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost. 4 inch pots.
