Happy surprises – Haworthia Attenuata ‘Alba’

I know I am a bit too much of a helicopter plant parent, and my succulents would probably benefit from more neglect.

But I love the occasional happy surprises that come from periodically handling each individual plant and checking on its progress – for instance, spotting the first signs of a new offset forming on one of your favorites — such as this week’s happy discovery was a new offset forming on one of my rooted haworthia cuttings, the variegated haworthia attenuata ‘Alba’.

Are you able to spot it in the first picture?

  1. Looking nice and happy.

    How long did it take to produce that plantlet. I have one for a few months 5 or 6 but no luck 😐

    1. I rooted the cuttings late last summer, most had offsets starting around one year. They’re planted in mostly grit with a sprinkle of bonemeal, with occasional diluted foliage pro fertilizer treatments.

    2. I know this is old, but I just saw the comment! It took about a year after rooting from a cutting. I’ve heard a free folks say haworthia seem more prone to offset if they’re a little under potted, which seems true for their near cousins aloes too. Smaller pots seem to help for some reason!

      1. thanks man, lol sadly I mine is in sort of artificial comma, after I cut the root cause it was black. Its been a month just sitting in the pot now neither does It die neither any roots. I should have invested in root hormone. 🙂 And yup no pups perhaps cause It was the second plant I got. assuming it would be tough.
