Description

The Little zebra plant is a small, striking succulent that is closely related to the Aloe species. It is currently classified as Haworthiopsis, but is probably more familiar under the name Haworthia fasciata. This plant originates from the Cape Province in South Africa and grows in sclerophyll forests, between stones and in grasslands. It grows about 10 to 20 cm high and forms dense rosettes of many thick, firm leaves. These have a white "zebra stripe" pattern of rows of white nodules on the dark green leaves. Young plants form at the base of the mother rosette.

Haworthiopsis fasciata is a robust, easy-care terrarium plant. A well-drained, sandy-gravelly substrate such as cactus and succulent soil is recommended. Water once a week at the most, or when the soil has dried out superficially. Occasional dryness is tolerated, but not waterlogging, which leads to rotting. The best location is bright, but without full sun. The plant can be propagated by cutting off the young plants at the base.

With its rather small, decorative leaf rosettes, this plant from the Asphodelus family is an ideal ground plant for drier terrariums. With its moderate light requirements, it tolerates light shade from other plants.
