Haworthia venosa (officially Haworthiopsis venosa, also called Breede Haworthia) is a petite, slow-growing succulent with plump, reddish-brown to deep green foliage, edged with small white teeth and textured like the scales of a reptile. These aloe-like succulents are easy to care for, requiring infrequent deep waterings and a bright windowsill. The Venosa Haworthia’s unique color allows it to stand apart from traditional green succulents and houseplants. Grow this plant in a succulent planter or on its own to bring some desert vibes into your home.
Best Locations For Growing Venosa Haworthia
Like other succulents, the Venosa Haworthia will do best located in a window where it can get at least half a day of direct sunlight. Keep this plant in a warm kitchen or living room window, or wherever sunlight is brightest in your home. Because it is a slow-growing plant, Venosa Haworthia can be kept on a windowsill, small shelf, or in a hanging planter.
Venosa Haworthia Sunlight Requirements
Place the Venosa Haworthia in a south- or west-facing window where it can receive all-day or afternoon sun. A north- or east-facing window or the interior of a room is not likely to provide enough light for Haworthia, so supplemental lighting may be necessary. When succulents are not getting enough light, they tend to stretch toward a light source, called etiolation. Additionally, since succulents prefer to dry out in between waterings, low light does not allow them to drink water fast enough, increasing the chance of root rot as the roots sit in damp soil.
Venosa Haworthia Plant Care
Succulents can often stay in the same pot for years without issue. Keeping succulents in smaller pots reduces the amount of excess soil around their roots, which stays wet for longer and increases the chances of root rot. When you do decide to repot Venosa Haworthia, choose a pot with drainage holes that is only slightly larger than the root ball and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil. It is normal for the lower leaves of succulents to dry up as the plant grows – remove these dead leaves as needed.
Watering Venosa Haworthia
Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering deeply. When the soil is dry, it may take a while to begin absorbing water, so add water multiple times or leave the pot in a few inches of water until the soil wicks up the moisture. One way to tell when the Venosa Haworthia needs water is by feeling the leaves. Freshly watered succulent leaves are firm and plump. As time passes and the soil dries, succulents will begin to use the water reserved in their leaves, making the leaves more pliable and even wrinkled. At this time, water your succulents deeply.
Feeding Venosa Haworthia
Venosa Haworthia will benefit from monthly fertilizing in the spring and summer months when it is growing the most. Dilute liquid cactus or succulent fertilizer when watering, making sure to follow dilution rates to avoid over-fertilizing. Too much fertilizer does more harm than good, especially for a slow-growing succulent that is watered infrequently. Fertilizing in the winter is not necessary, as plants often go dormant and growth slows.
