Haworthia truncata is a small succulent referred to as a horse’s teeth. It has dark green, rectangular, fleshy leaves that grow in a row and white lines. It is native to South Africa and can grow up to 1 inch tall and 4 inches wide.
Haworthia thrives in bright, indirect light and well-drained soil mix. You can plant them in a pot and place them in an area where they can get enough sunlight to thrive. Growing them is easy as long as you provide proper care for them.
It is a lovely addition to your collection of plants, especially if you have it displayed in a beautiful pot. Allow the soil to dry before watering them, and make sure there is an excellent draining hole in the pot to prevent root rot. You can propagate them via offsets, seeds, and leaf cuttings.
Fertilizing them once a month during their growing season using a cactus and succulent fertilizer will help them grow faster. You can grow them in USDA Hardiness Zones 10a-11b at 30-50 degrees F.
Haworthia truncata (aka Horse’s Teeth) is a species, like many haworthias originate like from South Africa (Western Cape: Little Karoo) in Oudtshoorn area.They grow in the shade of bushes and occasionally in open areas. They grow underground with only the apex of the leaves rising above the soil surface so that they are difficult to find. This is an excellent protection against herbivores . This very singular plant has contractile roots that will pull the plant into the ground during times of drought, leaving only the windowed tops exposed. Is a stemless distichous plants, medium sized with windowed leaves on upper margin. Solitary or slowly clumping depending on the clone. The leaves look as if they have been roughly cut off at the tops and they are arranged like a fan. As the plant grows take on an almost crested appearance. The leaf size and thickness. Protect from frost. Main picture is of my mother plant, all other(s) are shown here in 2.5″-3″ pots (for size reference) are the picture(s) of the actual plants being sold. Plant may ship bare root.
It is particularly easy to grow and rarely affected by common succulent pests and diseases. Strong, drought-tolerant roots will grow if they have great drainage and infrequent water. Pick deep containers with drainage holes and a gritty, well-draining soil that is 50% to 70% mineral grit (coarse sand, pumice, or perlite). Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole and allow the soil to completely dry before watering again.
