Haworthia fasciata is a small succulent, up to 4 inches (10 cm) tall. The triangular shaped leaves are green with narrow white crested strips on the outside. At the end of the leaf is a non acute spine. The white flowers appear in October and November, on the end of an inflorescence. The species has similar markings to Haworthia attenuata. The two are therefore frequently confused with each other
Haworthia are not considered difficult houseplants to grow. They are often grown in small clusters in wide, shallow dishes. Over time, clusters will naturally enlarge as the mother plant sends off small plantlets. When the cluster has outgrown its dish, repot in the spring or early summer into a new wide and shallow dish with fresh potting soil.
