Common name: Pearl Plant
It is one of the most impressive and eventually large species of the genus easily distinguished by its slender, pointed leaves with white tubercles, which in some cultivars may be doughnut shaped. It is one of the larger Haworthias, but slow growing and will take years to reach its mature dimension.
The plants live for about 30 to 40 years if they are cultivated properly.
Flowers: Somewhat larger than in other species, greenish to brownish-white in colour and waxy in texture (usually Haworthia flowers are white, not in this case).
Blooming season: Early summer. Seed ripens in autumn. It grows relatively slowly from seed and it takes about 5 years for a plant to reach flowering maturity.
