Hi!

I've had this Haworthia cuspidata for a few years now. I'm assuming these are pups that are surrounding the mother plant? Additionally, can I remove the pups and start new plants, and how so? Thanks!

I've not grown that Haworthia but if it is like the rest, yes.

I would gently lift and look for one of the smaller plants that should have roots starting on it. If so, you can gently separate it from the main plant with a sharp knife near the base of the mother.

Also, like most succulents, I would leave it out of soil till the cut dries to prevent rot.

Start with one and see how it does. In my experience with Haworthia, they are easy to propagate.

And do keep us posted... Thumbs up
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.
