Gardeners' Notes:

Positive poeciliopsis On Jan 27, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- I just acquired Haworthia parksiana in spring 2014 from the SMG Succulents in Oregon. It is always risky acquiring plants from such a radically different climate, but this plant did very well. The plant was large and I split it into 3 sections, one of which (in a pot) did not survive. The other two are planted outside and doing well. They survived the winter low of 26 F with protection only of fallen tree leaves. They are planted in cracks of sandstone rock and are watered once a month in summer and not in winter. This tiny Haworthia is the smallest member of that genus.
