    Attractive bumpy green succulent with small clumping rosettes and unimpressive white flowers. Both top and bottom surfaces of the leaves are decorated with small white tubercles or ridges, though the bottoms have more of these features, which give the plant its zebra look. Spineless.

    Much more common than the similar-looking Zebra Haworthia (Haworthiopsis fasciata) , which can be distinguished by the lack of bumps or ridges on the top surfaces of its leaves. The two species are frequently confused and fasciata is much much rarer in cultivation.

    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.

    These are one of the prettiest succulent flowers I've ever seen. They're also so tiny and cute!
