Fairies Washboard Haworthia is a robust plant, with larger rosettes - which grow to about 5 inches across, with broadly triangular leaves arranged in a pinwheel-like rosette. The leaves bear series of distinctive, pronounced ridges, which accounts for both its common name "Fairies Washboard". This plant grows rather quickly, so that in about 3-4 years, a single rosette will produce enough offsets to densely pack a 12 inch bowl. Flowers are small, white and bell-shaped on long stems. The species and its varieties have a rather wide distribution - they are native to Mozambique, Swaziland, and South Africa, with a number of recognized varieties and regional forms.
