Haworthia Veneosa Tessellata goes by the common name “Veined Haworthia” or “Window Haworthia”. This succulent is spiral-shaped. The plant originated in Namibia and comes from the family of Asphodelaceae. It becomes dormant in mid-winter and late spring and can grow up to a height of 6 inches.
The succulent is a slow-growing plant with green and brownish leaves. It forms rosettes that are fleshy and firm in texture.
You will witness tiny white and green flowers on top of extremely long stems. You will see these flowers growing out in the summer season.
Watering and Feeding
Water deeply but only when the soil has dried out. Stop watering during the summers to prevent root rot. Take a rest from feeding in summer, but continue it in the spring and fall. Dilute the fertilizer by half.
The succulent does not settle in any soil except a well-drained mix. Ensure it has coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Containers should have holes.
Hawrothia grows best in the summer season. It has a frost tolerance of anywhere between -3.9° C (25° F). Furthermore, it is hardy in the 9b to 11b zones.
Direct sunlight is not recommended since it will burn the leaves. Provide it with medium light.
Allow the offsets to grow to a decent size before you separate them. To make sure it survives on its own and has some roots.
