Haworthia cooperii var truncata, 3in Potted Plant, Succulent Plants, Asphodelaceae

3in Potted Plant

Name: Haworthia cooperii var truncata
Scientific Name: Haworthia cooperii var truncata
Family: Asphodelaceae

Rounded triangular button like leaves arranged in a spiral rosette might be appealing enough, but this succulent also has interesting transparent leaf tips. The lower part of the leaves are a light almost chartreuse green, sometimes they get an orange tint. With a cute bulbous appearance and low maintenance requirements this variety is a popular succulent arrangement choice. Does great alone and will fill out smaller pots with off shoots, or does great in a mixed container as it stays low as it fills out.

Height: 3-5 in (12cm)
Hardiness: USDA Zones 10-11

Growing Instructions: Low Water, Moderate light to full sun
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.
