Where it grows

Haworthia groenewaldii occurs near the town of Swellendam in the Western Cape of South Africa, specifically along the Buffeljagsriver. It is one of the more recently discovered Haworthia and was found by Jannie Groenewald on their family farm.

Special features

This attractive Haworthia with rounded leaves is closely related to Haworthia mutica. The leaf windows also have an attractive ‘shark-skin’ texture, with dense white spots or white lines. A select few plants have both strong spotting and many lines on their windows, but this is quite rare and generally only seen in cultivation.

Care guide

Haworthia prefer filtered sun and these should be kept under at least 60% shade cloth. Their soil should be gritty to allow good drainage, and we recommend some Ibaraki Akadama or Hyuga pumice. Water well throughout the year, making sure the soil doesn’t stay dry for too long in the cooler months. Avoid watering on hot days in summer.

Product FAQS

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

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

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.

We ordered plants from LDP through Harry Lewis a while back. We were very happy with our parcel. Reasonably priced. Very helpful as well. I can recommend Living Desert Plants.
