H. pygmaea Great Brak, ha86


H. pygmaea isn't small at all. The type form from Great brak has this velvety surface on the truncated leaf ends found in no other Haworthia. As with other retusoid haworthias, it has a natural tendency to lose its roots. Make sure you have a well aerated soil to avoid all roots going and the plant with it as well. If it is growing well don't repot untill necessary. Some carefully selected magnificent forms exist of this species.
