Haworthia turgida, native to Cape Province, South Africa, forms small rosettes with glassy green leaves with “crystalline” textures. Leaves are recurved at the tip, which is translucent and marked with green lines. Becomes reddish in strong light. Offsets freely to form small clusters quickly. Excellent for windowsill culture. Haworthias are winter growers and are dormant in the hottest summer months. Require very porous soil with excellent drainage. Prefers filtered, very 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. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
