Haworthia cymbiformis 'Star Window Plant'


Native to the arid cliffs of South Africa, ‘Star Window Plant’ is as hardy as they come – and incredibly eye-catching, to boot! The bright, yellowish green leaves, which grow beneath the soil surface in its indigenous environment as a water conservation mechanism, curve inward and are lined with soft white spines along the margins and irregular translucent lines towards the pointed tips of each leaf. These lines are actually ‘windows’ that allow light to reach deep within the recesses of the plant – an adaptation which shields ‘Star Window Plant’ from scorching conditions in the wild, but also allows it to thrive within the lower light spaces of our homes!

One of the easiest of all Haworthiato care for, ‘Star Window Plant’ makes an exceptional starter succulent. Tolerant of both shade and a degree of overwatering, this specimen can withstand the learning curve of a succulent newbie! To encourage its success, strive to provide ‘Star Window Plant’ with a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and a thorough but infrequent watering routine that allows the soil time to dry through between drinks. Given the appropriate care, this slow-growing variety will eventually produce offsets around the base of the 4-inch parent plant, and will send up stalks of white blooms annually.

Hardy only to Zone 10, be sure to shield the water-rich leaves of ‘Star Window Plant’ from frosty temperatures, which could otherwise cause permanent damage.
