I'm new to the group. I have a Zebra Haworthia in 1 1/2 inch pot. I was thinking about repotting it. What are your thoughts?

It appears to be very happy and healthy, I'd leave it alone.

That is a lot of plant for the amount of soil in the pot. Smiling

Choose a pot about as wide as the rosette, not much more (maybe 3" for starters). It should be wider than deep and have holes at the bottom. Use fast draining soil (for example regular potting soil mixed with an equal volume of pumice or perlite). Do not water for a week after repotting. Make sure that none of the leaves are below ground level. They should sit on top of the soil or they will be vulnerable to rot. Do I see some soil on top of the leaves right now?

If the plant has good roots, it will take right off from there and start clumping, over the course of years. Be sure to give it lots of light (indoors that would be right by a sunny window) especially during the winter, when light will be an issue. Don't put it outside in the sun right now, it's probably coming out of a protected location and the sun's rays are about the strongest they can be right now.... bright shade is better for starters if the plant will be outside.
