While H. cooperi var. variegata does indeed form rosettes of rich green, very chubby leaves, what stands out the most is not its growth form but the shape of its leaves. Flattened across the top with translucent ‘windowpanes’ offset by tendrils of cream and green reaching towards the center, the mesmerizing leaves perform a key function – they allow light to reach deep into the recesses of the plant, making it better able to tolerate dim conditions than many other succulent varieties. This adaptation, coupled with its compact size, makes it a perfect addition to any container arrangement or as a standalone specimen in any area of your home that could use a pop of whimsy.
Native to South Africa, the low growing Haworthia cooperi has adapted to surviving in the partial shade cast by taller plants – as such, it is able to tolerate indirect lighting conditions, even several feet away from the nearest window. This fact, coupled with its ability to heartily withstand arid climates, makes it an exceptional succulent for beginners – indeed, this variety prefers neglect to coddling! A thorough but infrequent watering routine, paired with porous soil within a well-draining pot, will have you well on your way to success.
The thick and water-rich leaves of H. cooperi are not frost hardy, so be sure to shield this succulent from freezing temperatures – and in return, as the winter days warm into spring it will send up stalks of tubular white blooms!

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!
