Fons, I have two pots of haworthia, but they have grown to look fairly wild.   :o

They are easy to propagate, take the best parts and repot them in fresh soil, water them once thoroughly, and put them away out of direct sunshine.
They dont grow that fast and they flower best when left alone, water them well every now and then, let the soil dry out intermittently, then they dont like bright sunny spots, shade is better,

You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Thank you for your advice.  Yes, they are apparently so.  I've had them for about twelve years or so, and they have bloomed only once.  I water them well but sporadically.

Delicate translucent petals.

Frank, yes, indeed.

Unlable to leave home due to age not illness I am depending on family to drop off small amounts of essential foods. Despite being considered vulnerable due to being 73 I am  unable to register with the government as such, the follow up is I cannot register for on line food deliveries because I am  not  on the government list so I am in a Catch 22 situation !

Why would you be forced to "register" just to qualify for food deliveries?

Thanks Frank

And thanks Akira and Colin. Yes it is delicate.

Absence of the sun makes it easier to register with this light.
