The flower of Haworthia cymbiformis is quite a bit more noticeable and attractive than some other species of the genus. The six narrow tepals are white, recurving and have a central dull maroon line on the inside down the centre into the base. Some haworthias are grown more for the leaf rosettes than for the small and inconspicuous flowers.
This is a comparatively easy species to grow. It should respond positively in well-drained sandy-loamy soil with partial sunlight and moderate watering. Its habitat receives mainly summer rain. The plant will produce suckers readily to form dense clumps or mats of rosettes. If they receive too little sun the leaves tend to get bloated and soft (www.thecactusking.com and http://haworthia-gasteria.blogspot.com).
