Haworthia Cooperi - How To Grow And Repot The Window Or Crystal Succulent.


John, which one do you want to do next? I wouldn’t mind having a look at Cooperi Rright, okay. This is probably a three year old plant. Maybe four since be done it a little bit. This is! Ob1 one. This is one of the more famous Cooper is to come out of Japan and the beauty of them is is they have that crystal clear windows up on top of the lines going up and the Japanese. They try to grow them so that you light shines through them, and they sort of reflect they like new mirrors. So all crystals magic. Japanese call it crystal plants, which is a name. I think is so apt for these things with those beautiful lines going up. Cooperi have a fibrous root system, so they’re very much like attenuators and things like that. Yeah, hit many healthy roots. It probably doesn’t need a pot. This deep, we’ve got all the root out. There’s teaser up a bit a few old roots in the center there, but they don’t want to come off. They’re not ready to go yet, but what we will do with this one, we will do a little bit of cleaning. This is where Cooperi’s are probably a little bit more common than some of the other ones you can see. It has a whole ring of babies around, lets. See that and what we’ll do we’ll take these off, so take flowers out. Let’s start here. Oh, yes, you could have tried to break them off right down the bottom and look, they come out with roots. When you do that all but roots ready, go and actually looks like a double-header. I think we’ll split it and now it’s got roots. Now before we put these up. We’ll take away old leaves. Tidy it up, flowers out! Just the flowers pull out really easily on these. If you don’t want the flower head, just pop them out, just slightly sideways out. That root is finished. Take it that out! Give it a clean up old leaf there. There we go, That’s ready for a repot. How only were those lenses jewels, crystal jewels? Look, we’ve pulled this plant apart now and had a look at it and they they really are beautiful the lenses. I just can’t stop walking at them. Okay, they’re absolutely amazing and especially when the light is behind them and the light shines through and you get different kind of lines. Some of these Japanese have bred them, so you got purple lines and black lines and all sorts of different colored lines. So they actually like little transparent lenses with Haworthias. What happens is is the plant photosynthesizes through the tops so often these can be semi buried in the desert with just the little bits of lenses going through, so it picks up the sun’s rays and then produce food and so they actually like lenses. They really are so here. Look, we’ve got a product a couple now. As it’s got a fibrous root system, we don’t need a deep pot. You really don’t, it’s a shallow pot. Is all you need for this one so again? I’ve one third to half filled a little bit of soil fertilizer in there, sir. And again, the nice, hyper mix. These can take a heavier mix because they’re more fibrous, a little bit around the back. Yeah, it’s another pot that what a strong roof for a Cooperi. Now these Cooperi’s come in a whole range of colors. Don’t they Llook predominately green, but they do have different windows. The main thing is is they have different shape, windows and different sized windows, and they’re bred them, so they actually get bigger and bigger and bigger, and then they do start putting in some of the hairy versions and things like that in them, so there are many many forms of CooperiI. And I’d love to show you some of the other forms. They’ve really are fabulous and so varied. It is possibly one of the more popular of all the Haworthias because of the really fabulous windows and variety of windows that you can get And an an indoor plant. Well, actaully, that’s a funny thing. I mostly like to say that succulents aren’t an indoor plants, but Haworthia are one of the few plants that you can actually grow inside because, uh, they actually really like low light, which is not much and that’s that’s sort of like a house. It’s quite bright. You know, not like maybe not like a black bathroom, but thank you. They don’t really like the direct. Sun, they will burn quite easy when they burn. They go browny yellow or green, the brownie sort of bronzee hue, and they looked much much better when they’re green, and they really are they one of the few succulents that I would say. You could actually grow indoors quite happily. Yeah, we grow them. Under 80 percent shade cloth. So that’s pretty dark. We have to use a dark green or a black shade cloth on top of a white shape off to get that much light factor down and we actually increase the shade over the summer months and take off some during the winter months when the Sun is much lower so here. We have one nice. Cooperi has netted about one two three, four six nine plants. So you can see they’re a little bit more prolific than a truncatta. I’d say that plan Tis probably three to four years old. It was probably a good-sized plant when we put it in there and it’s probably taken two years to develop all those young pups so that now mating make sure the roots face downwards. Put your soil in gently Hold your plant in the middle, but high this all runs in around the roots. Give a little shake firm it down, Pat. It up nine plants. Follow, okay, It’s not so much when you need. They do like water, but I like to feel the weight of a pot Rather than time. Colder weather. They’ll have operate much less hot weather tell evaporate more when the plant gets bigger and fills the pot up a lot more. It will drain the water out of the pot much faster, so it’s more like, learn the weight of your plant when it’s dry and then water it well when it gets light again, give it another water, but they can go without water for quite extended periods, three or four weeks and a plant. These plants will often tell you when they are a bit in need of water. The leaves will shrivel a little bit! The outer leaves, in particular will shrivel a little bit. You know, this one iota reckon almost this is telling you in almost needs of water now, but I’m not gonna water these for another week so far I was going away on holidays for two or three weeks. I could safely leave or the cooler. I did water time. Yeah, and it’ll be really happy without you. So that’s it for Haworthia cooperi. It’s a fascinating succulents, and we regard it as being one of the best indoor plants. You can have it. Doesn’t require a lot of water. You can leave it alone for three or four weeks.
