Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

This #easycare #succulent is a personal fave. The only problem raising this one is the way it tries to muscle its way out of the pot at least once a year...grows like CRAZY.

Mine tend to walk out of the container too! 🥰

OMG @emch, I need one of these, it’s gorgeous. How big is that pot?

@cheriej I started out with one of those 3"×3" square deals, but this is about 8" across. I still remove and hand out a few rosettes every year. It's a "give away all the rosettes you want; we'll make more" kind of plant 🤩

This is definitely one of my all-time favorites, too! 😍😍😍 I'm a total sucker for any zebra haworthia really, but the limifolia-esque ones especially. How long have you had these?? Mine haven't taken off to this degree yet, but I also haven't had them terribly long.

@beatnikcrab I have had mine something like 10 years, maybe longer...

That makes sense, then! 😂 My mom has a Haworthia fasciata that's like that. Also the Haworthia planifolia! Even more so.

@cheriej if I knew where to send it I could easily send you a division of this plant when weather permits...

That would be awesome!! Is there a way to send that to you that’s private?

On this site ppl do that by sending me their emails which robs you of a different kind of privacy. Do you have an account at Plant Collector where we can actually have a private conversation?
