Haworthia retusa is a species of flowering plants of the genus Haworthia in the family Asphodelaceae, endemic to a very small area around Riversdale, in the Western Cape Province in South Africa.
The small Haworthia Retusa is a popular succulent plant with a short rosette of thick, triangular leaves. It’s one of many flowering plants, like haworthia cuspidata and haworthia cooperi, that belong to the genus Haworthia and the family Asphodelaceae. The Haworthia Retusa comes to us from Riversdale on the Western Cape Province in South Africa and also has a few common names Window succulent, Star cactus and Aloe retusa. These tiny low maintenance succulents are often grown on window sills or added to cactus gardens. It’s a perennial plant and can last many years, provided the right plant care tips are followed.
