Haworthia "Ukukhanya" and 2 Mutations
"Ukukhanya" is the Zulu word for light and shine, not just is the leaves light, it shines out above the rest. The leaf colour seasonally varies from silvery on peppermint-green to white on chocolate-brown. A nice polyploid plant, double in size with more rounded leaves. This is one of our own Kambroo Plants hybrids.
In this batch we offer the outstanding hybrid "Ukukhanya", a polylpoid and a mutation.

Haworthia is a medium sized genus of Southern African plants. They are leaf succulents, forming very attractive rosettes of windowed, toothy, textured, lined marked or colored leaves. The number of species vary considerably, depending on the taxonomist and author. The genus is widespread and predominately found in the Eastern and Western Cape provinces but is also known from the Northern Cape and Orange Free State provinces. It is a nearly endemic genus to South Africa, except for a few records known from Namibia.
Caring for your Haworthia
Pot: Most Haworthia hybrids are best suited to cultivation in containers.
Soil: The plants prefer a well-drained soil, a mixture of sandy soil with some organic matter.
Light: The brighter the light the more colourful your plant. However Haworthia should be protected from direct sunlight. They prefer growing in shadier positions, but giving them more light, will let their colours come to light.
Water: Let your plants soil dry out for a few days between watering. Rather underwater than over-water to avoid root-loss. Cut back on watering during the coldest and warmest months of the year.
