Plant Bio

Tulista pumila

Originating from South Africa, Tulista pumila has been reclassified several times since its discovery and has been known as a both an Aloe and Haworthia before being moved to its own genus. Though it’s properly Tulista pumila, many still refer to it as a Haworthia. It is larger than the average Haworthia, but just as easy to grow.

When grown indoors, it wants as much light as it can get. It grows best within 1 to 3 feet of an unobstructed east- or west-facing window or the equivalent from plant lights. It prefers average household temperatures and tolerates low humidity levels. Water as the three-quarters or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Avoid overwatering and keep it away from hot or cold drafts. If you grow it outdoors, it prefers afternoon shade and a well-draining soil.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact.
