Haworthia cooperi

Haworthia cooperi

A small rosette shaped succulent, often growing in dense clusters. They are blue-green in colour and set into the soil, often only the leaf-tips are visible above the soil, this is so that the plant protects itself from the hot sun. There are 13 varieties of Haworthia cooperi.

Propagation

Division
Divide the clumps when they become too over crowded. Allow the soil to dry, lift the plants and gently ease the roots apart, then replant. When taking offsets, use a sharp knife or secateurs and cut as close to the mother stem as possible to including as many roots as possible, then allow the offset to dry briefly before re-potting it (similar to cuttings from other succulents).
