Houseplant Highlight:  Haworthia - Zebra Plant

Haworthias are sweet succulent houseplants and once in awhile are confused with Aloes and Gasteria plants.  Not surprising, they are all member of the Asphodeloideae family.  They are almost always small and very slow growing.  Very slowwwww growing!  This plant is great for the indoor succulent garden.  It has thick, dark green leaves with horizontal white stripes on the outside and the inside of the leaves are smooth.  In the summer, let the soil media dry out between waterings.  In the winter, reduce watering to every other month.  Never allow water to collect in the rosette.  Haworthias are quite an easy care plant and will grow in a home or office environment.  They also look outstanding in unusual containers or interesting soil mixes such as small pebbles or colored sand.  A perfect easy care gift or present for a gardener or anyone on your list.
