Haworthia Cooperi Silver Swirls  Cooperi is one of many species of the Haworthia genus they grow in clumps of small rosettes with tiny fleshy light green leaves.

"Silver Swirls" is aptly named due to the silver white patterning through the leaves. Like most haworthia it also has the transparent tips that act as 'skylights' to absorb sunlight as in the wild most…

This one can be a little testy when it comes to overwatering (think rotting stem and dead…
