Haworthia retusa acuminata variegata

Size

Sometimes known by the common name ‘Grey Ghost,’ Haworthia retusa acuminata variegata features near-perfect rosettes of sharply triangular leaves with long, spine-like tips and finely serrated teeth around the margins. The base coloration is a bright green, which is muted by a haze of silvery grey that is heaviest towards the base of each leaf before striating up towards the tips. A slow growing variety, Haworthia retusa acuminata variegatawill reach 3-4 inches across at maturity, making it easy to tuck this high-impact plant into any arrangement or windowsill.

Though its appearance may seem exotic, Haworthia retusa acuminata variegata could not be any easier to care for! Like many Haworthia, this cultivar can not only tolerate but thrive in shadier conditions than many succulents, making it a great fit for most homes. What can be a threat to its success, however, is excess moisture – so be sure to utilize a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, ensure ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and adhere to a thorough but infrequent watering routine.

With adequate care, a contented Haworthia retusa acuminata variegatawill send up spikes of small white blooms, with green throats and veining across each flower. Furthermore, during the winter months take steps to protect this tender succulent from frost, which could otherwise cause permanent scarring to the fleshy leaves.
