Hankey Dwarf Aloe

Recently changing names to Haworthiopsis, this Haworthia generally resembles miniature aloes, except in their flowers. They are popular garden and container plants. The plants can grow solitary or can be clump-forming. Their flowers are small, white and very similar between species. But their leaves show wide variations. Haworthia attenuata var. radula grows to 15 cm tall. The rosettes are up to 15 cm in diameter and remain close to the soil, forming clumps. The leaves are green to brownish in colour, covered with minute tubercles in both sides. Flowers are white with reddish-brown veins up to 30 cm tall.

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.
