Description Fine Print
 
Haworthia truncata is a distinctive succulent from the Little Karoo region of South Africa's Western Cape province. The thick, deep green to grey-green leaves occur in a row with new leaves emerging in the middle and spreading outwards to the left or right. The tips are truncated and translucent acting as "light pipes" that allow light to enter into the leaves -- which are often half buried in sand in the wild -- for photosynthesis. 'Cave King' is a rare cultivar with translucent and white markings and purplish and peach sides. Easy to grow. Tolerant of lower light than other succulents and cool temperatures but best kept above freezing.
