Cowhorn Hawarthia


Location

Native to South Africa, occurs from Port Elizabeth in the west to Great Fish River in the east.

Physical Description
Haworthia are not showy bloomers. They produce small, pale, grass-like flowers of little visual interest. These are born on very long, extremely thin wiry stems. It is not unusual for a stem to produce a foliage rosette on an old flower site or where the stem has been broken off. They are not great seed producers, preferring to root where they contact earth. Haworthia species bloom off and on over a long period from winterís end to late fall, though collectors and designers cut the bloom stems off to preserve the architecture of the plant.

General Information

Cultivation: The key to growing this succulent is fast draining soil and bright filtered light. They take very well to container culture and are popular subjects for small high quality pots. Under dry conditions and bright light, the leaves may take on deeper color or red tones. Growers produce haworthias in clumps or as individuals depending on the species. Plants appreciate frequent division for faster growing sorts, which produces a great number of new plants. Above all, and it bears repeating, ensure granular soil and express drainage. Withhold water in the winter to prevent rot while plants are dormant.

Propagation: It can be easily propagation by offsetts or stem-cutting.
