Flowering Season

From Mid Summer TO Mid Summer

Haworthia and Haworthiopsis will produce flowers, usually a few weeks after the "longest day" of the year, i.e. in Summer. However the flowers aren't very exciting, although because Haworthia and Haworthiopsis are very slow and compact plant not much happens visually during the year therefore the flowering period can be a welcome treat to show that your plant is actually "alive".

 

Planting Young Plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

When you re-pot your Haworthia or Haworthiopsis you can separate the offsets from the parent. Use a sharp knife and cut as close to the parent plant as possible, ensure the offset has some roots. Wait a day for the offset to dry slightly then pot up in a small container using a standard potting or cactus compost mix. Water and keep warm.
