General Care for Haworthia concolor
Haworthia concolor is a great succulent for beginners. It is low-maintenance, and thrives on neglect. Great for growing indoors at home or in an office where it can receive enough light. Watch for white blossoms in the Fall or Spring.
Haworthia concolor has typical watering needs for a succulent. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
Haworthia concolor is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in partial sun.
Plant in a container or area of your garden that gets plenty of partial shade. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets filtered sunlight.
How to Propagate Haworthia concolor
Haworthia concolor propagates easily from offsets. You can also propagate from seed, although it is a bit more difficult.
Haworthia concolor will produce small offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
If propagating from seed, sow in a well-draining soil in the fall. You can grow Haworthia seeds outdoors if you live in a zone above 9a. If you live in a cooler area, you can begin sowing indoors under a grow light.
