Plant Features

The Haworthia Zebra Plant, scientifically known as Haworthia fasciata, is a small, rosette-forming succulent renowned for its striking appearance. This plant is particularly noted for its thick, dark green leaves adorned with white, bumpy stripes or bands, giving it a zebra-like pattern. Its compact size and unique look make it a popular choice for succulent collections, windowsill gardens, and as a desk plant.

Caring for a Haworthia Zebra Plant involves understanding its succulent nature. Overwatering is a common issue and can lead to root rot, indicated by soft, yellowing leaves. It's crucial to let the soil dry out completely between waterings and to ensure the pot has good drainage. While it can tolerate low light levels, insufficient light might cause the plant to stretch out (etiolate), losing its compact form. Direct, harsh sunlight can scorch the leaves, so bright, indirect light is ideal. Haworthia Zebra Plants prefer a well-draining cactus or succulent mix. They don't require frequent fertilization, and over-fertilization can harm them.
