Haworthia Cooperi & Friends

Over the last few months Haworthia has become one of our favourite plants at CSW.

There are some incredible varieties such as Haworthia Cooperi that have the most beautiful semi-transparent leaves.

A little trivia, the genus Haworthia is named after the English botanist Adrian Hardy Haworth (1767 – 1833). Haworth was apparently steered towards the legal profession by his tutors, but instead dedicated his life to botany and natural history.

Like most succulents, Haworthia plants do not need much water, and can be propagated from leaf cuttings.

Many types of Haworthia tend to vigorously produce baby plants/pups. If you look after them well you will quickly find as many as 3-4 babies sprouting.

Similarly, if you buy a Haworthia plant from a garden centre you can often find a plant in the tray that comes with babies – which is always great!

The first seven of the photos in this incredible gallery of Haworthia cooperi and similar varieties/hybrids are from Flickr pro Salchuiwt.

We have also uploaded a photo of our own, and a selection of pictures from Instagram.
