Tulista is a small genus that is endemic to the Western Cape Province of South Africa. Based on phylogenetic findings, the “old” genus Tulista (described in 1804), was re-erected by Gordon Rowley to accommodate the species formerly known in the subgenus Robustipedunculares of Haworthia. Even though only a handful of species are recognised, there is a lot of variety known in the species, regarding their size, shape, colouration, leaf texture and tubercles.
Caring for your Tulista
Pot: Tulista is best suited to cultivation in containers. Some species are also well suited to a protected spot in the rockery in frost free winter rainfall areas.
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 and compact your plant will be. However Tulista can also tolerate slightly shaded positions.
Water: Let your plants soil dry out for a few days between watering. Rather underwater than over-water to avoid root-loss.
