Haworthia cymbiformis v. setulifera ‘Senjo Kan’

R200 incl. VAT

Where it grows

The natural, non-variegated form of Haworthia cymbiformis is quite variable, and has a wide distribution across the entirety of the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Special features

These special cultivar of Haworthia cymbiformis is almost completely variegated, with a bare minimum chlorophyll hidden on the bottoms of the leaves.

Care guide

Like most Haworthia, a well drained mix is essential. Moderate temperatures are preferred so the plant’s main growing seasons are spring and autumn months. You can give it lots of water in its growing season but make sure it dries out in between. It likes dappled light so we usually recommend 40% -60% shade cloth. The light directly influences the variegation so it’s an important consideration.

Growing season

Autumn and winter.

Propagation

Leaves and offsets.

Product FAQS

In our experience, the best time to repot a succulent is in the beginning of the growing season.

A chlorophyll deficiency which results in a lack of green pigment.

A plant with thick, fleshy tissue, designed for storing water over long periods of time.

A mutation in the growth point which results in the plant growing sideways rather than upwards.

If it's only one or two bugs, try to remove them by hand. Alternatively, spray with a pesticide or water with a systemic pesticide. We recommend RoseCare3 or RoseCarePlus, as both these are a combination pesticide and fungicide, which means they prevent insect pests and treat fungal infections.

Succulents do like fertiliser. The general rule of thumb is to fertilise in the growing season. Succulents are quite sensitive, so in our experience halving the recommended dose of general plant fertilizers works well. If it is a fertilizer formulated specifically for succulents and cacti, use the full recommended dose.

Succulents like heavy watering in the growing season, but do need to dry out between watering to avoid root rot.

No, because they are made up of mostly water, they are prone to frostbite.

It is best not to do so. This could stress the plant or burn it. Slowly introduce them by giving them a little bit more exposure each day.

It depends on the amount of sun exposure the window receives. Some succulents will be happy, but the majority will not get enough sunlight to maintain the correct shape. Alternatively, if the window receives too much light, the plant will be burned, as the window will act like a magnifying glass.
