The Haworthia (Kegani) succulent is a small, low-growing plant native to South Africa. It is an evergreen perennial with thick, fleshy leaves that form rosettes of green and white stripes. The leaves are pointed at the tips and can grow up to 3 inches long. The Haworthia produces white flowers in late summer or early fall, which are small but showy. The flowers are star-shaped and have six petals each. Haworthias prefer bright light but will tolerate some shade. They need well-draining soil and should be watered sparingly during the summer months, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. During winter months, they should be kept slightly drier than usual. This succulent is easy to care for and makes a great addition to any garden or container planting! Its unique foliage adds texture and interest to any space, while its low-maintenance requirements make it ideal for busy gardeners or those new to growing succulents. The Haworthia has been cultivated since the 19th century when it was discovered by botanist William Henry Harvey in South Africa's Eastern Cape Province. Since then, it has become a popular houseplant due to its ease of care and attractive foliage.
The Haworthia (Kegani) succulent prefers bright indirect light, meaning it should be placed in an area that receives some direct sunlight but not too much. It should not be placed in direct sunlight for extended periods of time as this can cause sunburn. For best results, provide medium light and avoid low light conditions.
Haworthia (Kegani) succulents thrive in well-draining, sandy soil that is slightly acidic. The ideal soil should be loose and airy to allow for adequate water drainage and oxygenation of the roots. It's best to use a cactus or succulent potting mix with some additional perlite or pumice added to it. Additionally, you can add a small amount of organic matter such as compost or worm castings to the soil mix for extra nutrients.
The Haworthia (Kegani) succulent is a low-maintenance plant that does best with infrequent watering. Water your Kegani every two to three weeks, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Make sure you use well-draining soil and provide adequate drainage when watering, as overwatering can cause root rot.
The ideal humidity conditions for the Haworthia (Kegani) succulent is between 40-50%. This range of humidity is best to ensure that your succulent will stay healthy and happy. You can easily achieve this level of humidity by misting your plant every few days or placing it in a humid room such as a bathroom.
