Haworthia in Medium Verge CubeHaworthia decipiens,
[ Height: 8" - 9" | Diameter: 5" - 6" ]
A Haworthia succulent is planted in a cream-glazed ceramic pot. Plants in the Haworthia genus are mostly small, low-growing succulents with a distinctive look. Many varieties are covered in white bands or warts, giving them the appearance of animal hide. Place in bright indirect light or a space that receives a few hours of morning sun. Check the soil for dampness once a week. If dry, add about a half cup of water, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided. Water should be applied to soil, not to the plant itself.

Plant Care Guide
As with most succulents, Graptopetalums grow best in full sun or partial shade. In hot summers, more shade may be necessary.
Allow soil to mostly dry out between waterings. Pour water on soil, not the plant's rosette.
Easy! Just place in bright sunlight and don't overwater.
Haworthias remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild cactus fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Warm temperatures are best during the growing season. Plants enjoy cool temperatures down to 55°F in the winter.
Use a well-draining cactus/palm potting mix.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune damaged areas by cutting to the base. To propagate, cut offset pups from the parent plant and allow to dry 24 hours before repotting.
Yes! Haworthias generally pose no risk if consumed by pets.
