• They purify the air – succulents like snake plant and Aloe Vera, are excellent at cleansing the air and removing toxins. These plants are extra helpful in library and study environments because VOC substances like benzene and formaldehyde are found in rugs, cigarette smoke, grocery bags, books and ink.
• Haworthia are dainty succulent houseplants and are frequently compared and confused with Aloes, and Gasteria plants, this is hardly surprising since they’re all members of the Asphodeloideae family. However, unlike Aloes, Haworthias are almost always small and very (very) slow growing plants.
• All healthy plants will eventually produce flowers, usually a few weeks after the “longest day” of the year, i.e. in Summer. However the flowers aren’t very exciting, but because Haworthia is a very slow growing and compact plant, not much happens visually during the year, therefore the flowering period can be a welcomed treat to show that your plant is actually “alive” and doing well.
How to care :
Soil: Like most all succulent plants, Haworthias do not like their roots to remain wet for prolonged periods, so their soil mix should be well drained. A good commercial potting soil should be mixed with equal amounts of drainage material.
Sunshine: Haworthia species like bright light, but not direct sunlight. These grow in similar conditions to other succulents. In their native environment, they are often found in the shade of a rock or other object. They do best in a room with a window facing east or west to provide bright light for a few hours a day
Watering: Haworthia need to be watered when their soil is completely dried out and their leaves start to curl (about every two to three weeks). In the winter, they need less water.
The takeaway :
If you want a plant that:-
• Is very easy to maintain
• Is a gorgeous house/office/desk plant
• Purifies air and gives you healthy breaths.
Then Haworthia is a great pick for you!
