When we were at Maypop Shop last weekend I picked up this adorable little Haworthia Concolor succulent. I wasn’t planning on getting her but she was so cute in her little planter that I couldn’t resist checking her out. I ran my fingertips across her and got total reptilian vibes from her texture so I added her to my box of plants. I said to Brandon, “She feels reptilian, like a lizard” so guys…meet Lizzie, my new Haworthia Concolor succulent!
I bought a little planter to move her into but once I put her in it I realized it’s a bit too small for her so I’m going to have to re-pot her again soon. She’ll probably end up joining me at the office since I need a little greenery there and just the sight of her makes me happy. I’ll be moving soon to a workspace that will get a lot of sunlight so Lizzie should do well there. Some varieties of Haworthia succulents can grow up to 20-inches tall but the Haworthia Concolor succulent usually maxes out around 6-inches. If she gets too tall I’ll probably bring her home and keep her in the dining room on a plant stand instead.
Haworthia succulents don’t typically bloom until the summer but you can already see the tiniest little bud in the middle of Lizzie’s little spikes so I expect to see her flower soon. I’m so excited!
Haworthia Concolor Succulent Basics
- Requires partial sun
- Can be grown indoors
- Grows up to 6″ tall
- Propagation by offsets and seeds
- Generally non-toxic to animals
The Haworthia Concolor succulent is a great option for beginners because it’s low-maintenance and actually tends to thrive on a little bit of neglect. So, if you’re the kind of plant parent that tends to forget your plant babies need care, this is a great one to start out with and learn about. I’m keeping Lizzie at the office with me since this variety is great for growing indoors (at home or at the office) provided it gets enough sunlight.
Keep this pretty girl in the (partial) sunlight and watered well and she’ll provide you with your gorgeous little white flowers in the spring and fall. The Haworthia Concolor has typical watering needs for a succulent. I recommend completely soaking her soil and then letting the soil completely dry out (even at the very bottom) before watering her again. She’ll likely need watering once a week but if you live in an area with high humidity you may be able to get away with watering her once every two weeks.
I would never go longer than two weeks without watering your plant. If you find that the soil is still damp after a week or two it’s time to either change the soil or the pot. Succulents need to be in pots with a drainage hole and in a well-draining rocky mix soil.
Lizzie is already showing a little flower bud so I’m hoping to see her bloom soon! I’ll be sure to share it on Instagram as soon as the flower opens up.
