weekend succulent projects continued…

Hawarthia truncata

I bought Haworthia truncata last weekend a Sunflower Farms in Gardena, California. As I said in the last succulent post, I was forced–yes, forced–to go to the garden center to get more plants matter for the container I was planting, I also got this Haworthia coarctata.

I potted the Haworthias up together with a very well draining mix. I also added some clay beads at the bottom for better drainage. As I said before, unglazed pots will save them from my watering habits…and if I forget, they won’t care that much. Look at the babies!


A good tutorial on repotting Haworthia is this youtube video by Desert Plants of Avalon. She was my first real inspiration to start planting succulents 🙂 I love watching people on youtube who really love their plants for what they are, and not because it’s trendy.
