is a miniature succulent native to South Africa, and is one of the
easiest houseplants to care for. It is characterized by its
architectural structure, typically solitary columns which form in
layers, though this can differ widely between varieties and even within
the same species. A common Haworthia is characterized by its
rosette-shaped, tightly packed leafy clusters. Some are firm, tough, and
dark green, whereas other species are softer and even translucent.
Those of the firm, dark green variety are typically dotted with white
spots and can turn a rich hue of purple-red when exposed to full sun.
