Haworthia limifolia 'Fairy Washboard'

$ 6.00
Size: 2"

The broad, sharply triangular leaves of fairy washboard feature a rich green base tone covered in slightly wavy, raised bands of lighter green coloration. This cultivar draws its name from the growth pattern of its leaves around the rosette – instead of stacking up the stems, the rigid leaves appear to swirl outward from the center of the plant, creating a uniquely mesmerizing appearance. Its diminutive size of only 3 inches tall and wide, coupled with its highly textured leaves, also lends this plant the nickname fairy washboard – and this hardy specimen does indeed make an exceptional addition to whimsical container arrangements such as fairy gardens!

Able to thrive in the low lighting characteristic of many indoor spaces, it is a fantastic houseplant for seasoned and beginner plant lovers alike. It’s drought tolerance also makes it well suited to enduring the occasional forgotten watering – though it is not similarly tolerant of too much water! To strike the correct balance, be sure to plant it in a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, ensure ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and embrace a thorough but infrequent watering routine.

This slow-growing variety will slip into dormancy during the high heat of summer, and begin to grow (and even bloom) once again during the winter months. That said, it is not hardy below Zone 10, so take care to shield the thick leaves from freezing temperatures to ensure a successful growing season.

    **Please Note: This plant is not available for wholesale**


    Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
