| SHIPPING INFORMATION: |
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reach down for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
|Haworthia emelyae var. major is a small, stemless, succulent plant, usually solitary that rarely offsets, up to 3.2 inches (8 cm) across, with textured leaf surface and lovely symmetry. Although in this variety the leaf tubercles are armed with a spine, the general form of the plants is that of Haworthia emelyae. The leaves are dark, rough-surfaced, with a triangular flat topped, translucent area, with small white, spiny, crystalline tubercles that converge into lines running to the point. The leaves turn almost red in winter. Flowers are small, white with green veins, borne on a up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall inflorescence.

Rosettes: Stemless, usually solitary that rarely offsets and only grows to about 8cm across. Leaves: Dark, rough-surfaced (almost like sandpaper) with a triangular flat topped, translucent area, with small white, spiny, crystalline tubercules that converge into lines running to the point. The leaves turn almost red in winter. Inflorescence: 30 cm tall. Flowers: White with green veins.|
