Haworthia guttata is a rejected name now considered synonym of Haworthia reticulata. It is a handsome and colourful cespitose haworthia which, some say, may be of hybrid origin.
Rosette: Stemless , about 3-8 cm in diameter with spiralling leaves.
Leaves: 2,5-3,5 cm long, 7-8 mm wide, smooth, light-green to dull greyish-green, windowed and reticulate in the upper surface speckled with pale spots below, margins finely denticulate. The colour of leaves varies considerably depending on clone and growing condition, plants growing during a hot dry summer develop very beautiful shades of red whereas plants in winter are a bright green.
Frost Tolerance: Light frost protection required. Minimum of 5ºC for safe growing (but hardy up to -5°C.)
Sun Exposure: Requires light shade to bright light (protect from direct sun)
