Fairy Washboard is a small succulent that grows at a medium pace and has unique leaf spots, making it popular with many gardeners and easy to identify. The plant has names such as Washboard, Fairy Washboard, and Haworthiopsis limifolia and belongs to the genus Haworthiopsis. Fairy Washboard is native to South Africa, where it was first cultivated at the beginning of the 20th century.
A characteristic feature of the plant is that it can adapt to different climates and survive in low-light conditions.
The leaves of Fairy Washboard have a characteristic delta-like curve that creates a spiral effect, and its color ranges from light to dark green. Due to the unusual texture of the leaves, which is similar to the shape of a washboard, the name Fairy Washboard appeared.
