Haworthia obtusa, a lovely succulent that is relatively low maintenance, is a member of the Aloaceae family. This fast-growing desert plant has its origin in South Africa. It is widely popular by its common name Zebra Cactus, Cushion Aloe, Star Window Plant, or Mini Aloe. This summer-dormant species can reach heights of 3 to 4 inches. In its natural habitat, the Cushion aloe plant grows in thick clusters and is known for its unique appearance.

Growth rate

The Star window plant has a fast growth rate.


This variety of Haworthia produces whitish or greenish flowers from the spring to summer season. Your home or garden will look fantastic with these magnificent blooms.


This drought-resistant plant retains water in its stems & leaves. It is important to always maintain low relative humidity and never let any standing water accumulate around the roots. The soil should be kept damp during summers and in the winters, on the other hand, water only if the soil is entirely dried out.


The Cushion aloe succulent prefers soil that dries quickly to avoid water retention. Thus, it appreciates a particularly porous potting medium that is non-acidic. 


Haworthia cymbiformis is hardy in zones 10a to 11b. It is better to plant these succulents indoors if you live in areas with minimum temperatures of 23° F (-5° C).


This one-of-a-kind plant prefers light shade, but can also tolerate partial daytime exposure to full sun.


By leaf or stem cuttings or by removing offshoots, you can easily propagate the Zebra cactus.

Because it's reasonably easy to care for, the Haworthia obtusa makes a nice succulent plant. Beginners enjoy this plant species too!
