Haworthia cymbiformis, native to Cape Province, South Africa, forms star-shaped rosettes with grass-green and ivory -white striping, extremely succulent leaves. Leaves are obovate, with pointed tips and have delicate ivory-white veins running into the translucent "windowed" leaf tips. 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.
