Further stack your court of indoor-friendly succulents with this form of the incredibly easy-to-grow, low-maintenance zebra plant. Haworthia ‘Royal Albert’ is a chill, low-water, texturally inviting succulent that’s perfect for first-time plant parents and those who don’t have big, sunny backyards at their disposal. Take note, busy, plant-loving city dwellers: Like the famous zebra plant (Haworthia fasciata), ‘Royal Albert’ can handle lower light environments better than most succulents and endure drought and neglect with “whatevs” aplomb. ‘Royal Albert’ will reign supreme during vacations while the plant sitter is busy tending to the foliage plants. This haworthia stands apart from zebra plant species by virtue of its thicker, wider leaves. It looks positively stout in comparison; zebra plant leaves are decidedly more slender and numerous. Also in contrast to the stripe-y zebra plant, the raised pearls on the leaves of ‘Royal Albert’ don’t connect to form bands resembling the stripes of zebras. ‘Royal Albert’, like other haworthias, shines in its own pot or in mixed planters with other shade lovers. Can handle morning or early evening sun in cooler or coastal areas, taking on a cinnamon-like tint.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
