Plant: Pearly Dots [Haworthia Margaritifera]
Vessel: 16oz Mason Jar
Other ingredients: Succulent soil, foraged sea pebbles, perlite, peat moss.
About: These little beauties have always reminded me of Aloe, except they’re a little more flashy, slow growing, and generally smaller. Not shocking, Haworthia and Aloe are loosely related. I used to primarily keep these outside, but after noticing the tips of the leaves getting a little scorched, I started to incorporate them in more shaded areas as well as inside with great results.
Watering: Water 1-2x per month or as soil dries out by adding water, letting it seep in until the upper part of the soil becomes visibly moist. A tiny bit of moisture at the bottom is okay, but the succulents should NEVER be sitting in wet swampy soil.
Keep in mind, the general advice for outdoor succulents in a cool to moderate climate is to water once per week in the summer and once per month in the winter allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, so as to mimic their native conditions of hot stormy summers and cold dry winters. Indoors, and in terrarium style planters, succulents will require even less water.
Lighting & Temperature: Bright, indirect light is ideal. These are generally intended for indoor use, or in a protected, covered outdoor space.
In the garden, these Pearly Dot Haworthias can withstand some direct light, but they prefer to be protected from too harsh of rays. Indoors, they do great with bright, indirect lighting. Temperature should stay in the 70’s on average - basically, average indoor temperature.
Occasional swings up into the 80's and even down into the 50’s are absolutely fine. The main concern is that since these terrariums are in mason jars, care should be taken to ensure the roots aren’t exposed to adverse conditions. For instance, best not to leave it in a spot where the sun beats down on the glass all afternoon - don’t wanna steam those roots!
