Συνώνυμα: Haworthia obtusa f. truncata, Haworthia ikra
In nature it grows in the crevices of rocks and in the shade of bushes.
Its name 'turgida' derives from its fleshy and turgid leaves, which are of a light green color. With the prolonged exposure to the direct sun, like all Haworthias, it may take on brown colors.
- Requires an exposure in partial shade, as long as it still receives plenty of light throughout the year.
- It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 5 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.
- It is advisable to always keep the soil slightly moist in spring and summer. Beware of stagnant water that could cause rotting.
- The best soil is a well draining one, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate.
- They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
