Where it grows

Haworthia marxii is native to the Western Cape of South Africa, in an isolated area near the town of Laingsburg.

Special features

Haworthia marxii is one of the rarest and hardest to grow species of Haworthia. It is dark in colouration with plenty of leaf window striations. This particular specimen has pink and orange variegation.

This species is quite fussy and is not ideal for beginner growers.

Care guide

Like most Haworthia, a well drained mix is essential. Plant this specimen in a mix of 1:1:1 Akadama, Pumice and perlite. It prefers filtered light, and should be kept under at least 60% shade cloth. Water well during autumn and spring. Make sure that the soil dries out in between each session of water. This species needs plenty of airflow and should not be kept in a greenhouse or indoors.

Growing season

Autumn and spring.


Propagation is very difficult and it is best to grow from leaves.

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.
