5. Tiny Shrew Haworthia
Outwardly, this plant easily betrays its belonging to succulents. And although haworthia evokes associations now with aloe, now with gasteria, it is easily recognizable by the much more strict structure of the rosettes, and by its special colors.
Haworthia (Haworthia) - the smallest of the representatives of strict indoor cultures. Pointed leaves in "thorny" symmetrical rosettes with their almost geometric whitish outgrowths and thorns give the impression of restraint and austere beauty. Even when Haworthia releases daughter outlets, this impression does not change. Haworthia is a small, but very "strong" plant in its influence on the environment. She is able to bring order to any chaos - be it a large collection or a group of large indoor plants or a cluster of small decor, household items. From a distance, Haworthia visually increases the area of the windowsill or furniture on which the ceiling stands and "pushes back" a little.
With its strict lines, this plant seems to emphasize natural light, contrasts surprisingly well with any palette, and distracts attention from any background. As a miniature accent with perfect lines, Haworthia is indispensable in minimalist design, and the possibilities of growing in decorative mini florariums allow for modern green accents inside the interior. In any setting, Haworthia seems flawless and invulnerable.
All haworthia develop in the form of a strict rosette of fleshy leaves, similar to thorny flowers. They grow quite quickly, actively release layers and lateral growth. The thickened, juicy, fleshy leaves of the Haworthia are decorated with a jagged edge with thorns and various warty growths, which in most Haworthia create a kind of variegated patterns located not along, but across the leaves. But even those species in which the leaves are not decorated with zebra-like patterns are very effective. The edge of the leaves is pointed, elongated. This beauty has so many species that you can choose strict striped patterns, thickened-shortened leaves, and classic forms.
Haworthia is one of the easiest plants to grow. Satisfied with even minimal watering, it is suitable for those who are not at all fond of plants, and for inexperienced ones, and for gardeners who are often on the road.
