Haworthia Planifolia 

(This plant comes in a 3.5" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

The Haworthia Planifolia belongs to the Asphodelaceae family, having its origin in South Africa. The summer-dormant species is extremely easy to grow but short-sized at 10 cm height. This tolerant miniature succulent has fleshy green leaves and grows best in partial shade. 

Growth Rate

Haworthia planifolia has a slow growth rate and requires little attention. The succulent grows in the same pot for years but needs repotting every second or third year for healthy growth.


The blooming season is June when the plant blooms bright white star flowers with a yellow spot. The flowers are small and bloom in slender, unbranched inflorescences.

Watering and Feeding

Watering needs to be balanced. Overwatering can lead to root rots. Underwatering is not an issue as the succulent would survive. Watering should be done earnestly from spring to fall, after which only when the topsoil dries.


Haworthia planifolia will grow cheerfully in well-drained soil. These plants grow well even in rocky and sandy areas. For sustained growth, it is good to go with commercial succulent soil.


This variety has a hardiness range of 9 to 11 and a frost tolerance of -1.1° C (30.02° F).


Haworthia planifolia grows well in sheltered spots or partial shade. In their natural habitat, the succulent has healthy growth under rocky overhangs and bushes. Prevent keeping the plant in deep shade.


These plants can be propagated through offsets or seeds.

This cute succulent can be a showstopper of your home or office if well cared for. The solitary columnar structure makes it a worthwhile showpiece.
