Succulent ID and repotting

gonzyroJune 20, 2006

Hello, everybody! I bought recently this beautiful succulent, but I don´t know its name. It´s also a little too big for the small pot, and I wanted to know if and how can I repot it. It has a little plantlet growing at its it safe to repot that little one too?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I can't help with the cultural questions, but your plant looks like Haworthia limifolia to me.

Go ahead and repot. The offsets from limifolia often come from the roots, so separate it or cut it off when you unpot, and leave to air dry for a day or two. As with most succulents, don't water immediately after potting, but wait a few days, and then give just a little bit until you see new growth. And Happy Birthday to you in advance!

Haworthia limifolia. I would not repot yet. these plants can stay for ages in the same pot and as far as I can see: room enough. I have mine in a light place with only some late afternoon direct sun. Little water and hardly ever some fertilizer. greets hablu

Nice plant you have! I'd repot, but in the same size, in a clay pot for better drainage. It doesnt need more room from the looks of it.
