Haworthia fasciata "Zebra Plant"
Price: $5.10Sku: 0850477
Haworthia fasciata, native to South Africa, forms an upright, slender rosette with tapering incurved dark green leaves covered with silvery white raised "pearls" that connect to form bands that give the impression of zebra stripes. Beautiful, heirloom favorite that makes an excellent houseplant or windowsill plant. Haworthias are winter growers and are dormant in the hottest summer months. Require very porous soil with excellent drainage as many forms have thickened tap roots. Prefer filtered, bright light. Those species with red veining or chocolate faces will exhibit superior color in bright light. All forms that are green, especially included the variegated forms, will prefer filtered light.
