About Plant- Haworthia coarctata is a succulent plant, up to 8 inches (20 cm) tall, that grows in large clumps in its natural habitat. It has long stems packed with robust succulent leaves. They are normally dark green but sometimes acquires a rich purple-red when in full sunlight. However H. coarctata has smaller, smoother and rounder tubercles on its leaves. H. coarctota also usually has much wider, fatter leaves. Anytime from late spring to fall, the largest, most mature rosettes produce up to 12 inches (30 cm) long, whip-like flower stems. Tiny greenish-white, tubular flowers occur on the stems high above the foliage.
Haworthia Coarctata Plant Care
Light- Even though most species can tolerate full sun, these succulents thrive in semi-shaded positions. However, brighter light conditions are needed to bring out the leaf coloration.
Soil- Plant your Haworthiopsis in a commercial soil formulated for succulents or make your own well-draining potting mix.
Hardiness- Haworthia can withstand temperatures as low as 30 to 50 °F (-1.1 to 10 °C), USDA hardiness zones 10a to 11 b.
Watering- The best way to water these plants is to use the "soak and dry" method. In the winter, reduce watering to once per month. Never allow water to sit on the rosette.
Fertilizing- Haworthiopsis are slow-growing succulents, and they do not require much fertilizer. Feed only with a dilute fertilizer and only from spring to fall.
Repotting- When the plant has outgrown its container, repot in the spring or early summer into a new slightly larger pot with fresh soil.
Propagation- Haworthias are mostly and easily grown from stem cuttings or by removing offsets from the mother plant.
