4in Potted Plant
Name: Haworthia turgida var longibracteata
Scientific Name: Haworthia turgida var longibracteata
This funny succulent is quick to make clusters with it’s off shoots. Each of the succulent leaves are green and stretch upwards with the triangular leaf face that faces upwards being translucent. The transparent leaf tip stands out and is great to look at. The skinnier leaf gives space between each leaf giving this variety a different look, since many haworthia leaves tend to be tight together. Not to mention it requires little maintenance and has basic needs, makes this a great house plant.

Water only once the soil becomes dry, any pots should also have proper drainage. Well-draining soil should also be used, cactus mixes are good and often contain extra perlite and sand. Roots should not remain saturated for extended periods. A weekly watering during the growing seasons (Spring/Summer) and less often during the dormant period (Winter) is usually more than enough water. Bright indirect light is preferred, although they will tolerate a shady area. Fertilize with ½ strength during the growing season. Avoid freezing temperatures, ideal temperatures are above 60° F (15° C), although they will tolerate lower temperatures. Offsets can be separated and is the main method of propagation.
