Haworthia or Zebra cactus are native to South Africa and they are closely tied to Aloe. These are very easy to care for succulents and come in over 150 different varieties. The genus name Haworthia commemorates Adrian Hardy Haworth, an accomplished British botanist and entomologist.
Succulents are a group of plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. While they do need water to survive, they can endure extended periods of drought. Nearly all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
Care and Maintenance
Keep it in very bright rooms (direct sun if possible), and water only once the soil seems fully dry. This is a fairly drought tolerant variety but it does need consistent watering to stay healthy and keep growing. Try and avoid the leaves when watering.
