Like all Haworthia, it prefers a bright environment, but it shouldn’t be exposed directly to sunlight.
In their natural environment, in fact, they are commonly found in the shade of rocks or other objects.
Direct exposure for long hours could cause yellowing of their leaves.
Being native to countries such as South Africa and Mexico, they prefer warm climates.
However, they manage to adapt to lower temperatures, resisting even frost, albeit for very short periods. Therefore, in winter they should be brought indoors.
Haworthia Superfasciata lives in very different environmental conditions, but avoid water stagnation, which can cause root rot and therefore the death of the plant.
It is therefore necessary to make sure that the soil is completely dry before watering the plant.
They bloom in summer, forming a long central stem from which small white flowers bloom.
The name of this species is a tribute to Adrian Hardy Haworth, one of the first botanists to study it.
