Native to South Africa, Haworthia fasciata 'Zebra Plant' is an exceptional succulent for beginners with dark green leaves and horizontal white, bumpy stripes on the outer side. With an upward growth habit, each fleshy leaf comes to a tapered point, similar to an aloe, and the entire slow-growing plant has the potential to reach up to 8 inches tall and wide.
This succulent’s ability to not only tolerate, but thrive, in partial shade conditions makes it extremely well-suited to life in a less sun-drenched space, which describes many interior conditions! Too much bright sun exposure can cause the leaves to first take on a reddish hue from stress, before eventually turning white and drying out from sunburn. With typical succulent water needs, this variety will thrive when watered according to the ‘soak and dry’ method, and prefers porous soil in a well-draining pot. Though it is not prone to many pests, good ventilation around the leaves and soil surface will help to ward off any signs of rot. Further, ‘Zebra Plant’ is not cold hardy beyond Zone 10, and must be protected from freezing temperatures.
This variety produces offsets readily when given suitable growing conditions, as well as sending up thin flower stalks bedecked with small white or pink blooms in the fall months.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
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!
