PR Live plant. Harworthia margaritafera(8.5cm pot)
Although similar in appearance to Aloes, Harworthia has shorter leaves and a more upright growth habit and attractively spotted leaves. They propagate by forming offshoots and can develop into large clumps. Like most desert plants Harworthia needs bright lighting, and a free draining soil but this species will tolerate some shade. Although drought tolerant they prefer to be watered as the soil dries out, but before they are completely dry. Unless the terrarium is set up with a deep, bio-active substrate then plants is a dry terrarium are best kept in their pot, which is then disguised with substrate and decor. This allows the plants to be watered as necessary without making the whole substrate too damp.
