Haworthiopsis fasciata 'Lime'

Description: Haworthiopsis fasciata 'Lime' is a striking, rosette-forming succulent in the family Asphodelaceae. This variety, often referred to as 'Zebra Plant' due to its distinctive horizontal white stripes, features lime-green leaves that are thick, fleshy, and pointed. The leaves are adorned with small, white tubercles on their undersides, giving them a bumpy texture. This plant is relatively small, typically growing up to 4 inches (10 cm) tall and wide. In late spring to early summer, it produces slender, wiry stems with small, tubular white flowers.

Distribution: Haworthiopsis fasciata is native to the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. It thrives in rocky, well-draining soils and is often found in the partial shade of other plants or rock crevices. The plant's natural habitat experiences seasonal rainfall and moderate temperatures, conditions it is well adapted to endure.

Care Sheet:

  • Light:

    • Requirement: Bright, indirect light to partial shade.
    • Details: Haworthiopsis fasciata 'Lime' prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate partial shade. Direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day, can cause leaf scorching. If grown indoors, place it near a window with filtered light or in an east- or west-facing window.
  • Watering:

    • Requirement: Moderate watering with a dry period.
    • Details: Water thoroughly when the soil is dry to the touch, then allow the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Reduce watering in the winter when the plant is dormant.
  • Soil:

    • Requirement: Well-draining soil.
    • Details: Use a cactus or succulent mix, or create your own blend with sand, perlite, and a small amount of organic matter to ensure excellent drainage. The soil should be gritty and loose.
  • Temperature:

    • Requirement: Warm temperatures.
    • Details: Ideal temperatures range from 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Protect the plant from frost and avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
  • Humidity:

    • Requirement: Low humidity.
    • Details: This plant prefers dry conditions and does not require additional humidity. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal issues, especially in humid environments.
  • Fertilizing:

    • Requirement: Light fertilization.
    • Details: Fertilize sparingly with a diluted, balanced fertilizer during the growing season (spring to early summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, which can harm the plant.
  • Repotting:

    • Requirement: Infrequent repotting.
    • Details: Repot only when necessary, typically every few years or when the plant has outgrown its container. Handle the plant gently to avoid damaging its roots.
  • Propagation:

    • Requirement: Offsets or leaf cuttings.
    • Details: Propagate by carefully removing offsets that grow at the base of the parent plant or by leaf cuttings. Allow cuttings to dry and callous before planting in a well-draining mix.
