Central Phoenix -- Haworthia venosa tessellata is a workhorse Haworthia. It seems to grow in a wide variety of partial to dense shade, with varying degrees of low water, and is not frost sensitive, having survived down to the low 20s in my garden. My many plants of H. v. tessellate all came from one small purchase in the mid-1990s. The original clump is now over a foot in diameter and would be larger except that it is confined by a wall in one direction and cut back annually by me in another. When allowed to grow into a dense clump, the interior plants are much smaller than a plant growing singly.

Ornamental green to brown (in sun) stiff-leaved rosettes with maculated pattern on the flat, upper leaf surface and frosted warty lower leaf surface. Slow to offset and eventually forms a columnar plant.
