Haworthia limifolia

To swap with Alan Keeling

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

I have rooted and unrooted offsets. These plants lose their root every couple of years but can usually be re-root in a fresh gritty compost. I have around 3 or 4 offsets.

Plant Finder: about the Haworthia genus

Description

Haworthia genus. These are basal-rosettes. There are about 150 species. They are clump-forming perennial succulents with triangular to rounded green leaves which are marked with distinctive white spots. The flowers are produced in racemes of insignificant white or occasionally yellow 6-lobed flowers which appear in the summer. Roots tend to wither in winter or during long periods of drought. Frost tender, min. 5-I0C . Needs partial shade to stay green and grow quickly; if planted in full sun it turns red or orange and grows slowly. Requires very well drained soil. Keep dry in winter. Propagate by seed or division from spring to autumn.
