Zebra Haworthia Overview

Haworthiopsis fasciata is a small succulent plant from the Asphodelaceae family. It grows to around 10cm in height, producing triangular green leaves with narrow white, crested strips on the outside. It is well known by an older name, Haworthia fasciata and often missold as such. Also commonly called Zebra Haworthia. This succulent produced pointed, triangular leaves with white-tipped, raised ridges. White flowers appear in October and November. The similar-looking Haworthiopsis attenuata is often confused with this species, distinguish between them by the location of the white ridges on the leaves. In this species, they are only produced on the underside of the fleshy leaves, with the upper surface being smooth. This plant also generally produces shorter, more compact leaves compared to Haworthiopsis attenuata.
