Attractive bumpy green succulent with small clumping rosettes and unimpressive white flowers. Stemless. Only the bottom surface of the leaves is decorated with small white tubercles or ridges; the top leaf surface is smooth. Spineless.

Much less common than the similar-looking Haworthia (Haworthiopsis attenuata) , which can be distinguished by the presence of bumps or ridges on the top surfaces of its leaves. The two species are frequently confused. The leaves of fasciata tend to be more deltoid than lanceolate, and they tend to be incurved, more like coarctata or reinwardtii than attenuata. Most of the plants labeled fasciata in cultivation are actually H. attenuata.

Provide strong light. Best form in part sun or filtered light (outdoors) or maximum sun (indoors). Provide excellent drainage. Avoid deep pots. Allow soil to dry before watering.

Haworthiopsis was recently separated from Haworthia based on genetic studies.
