A while back, we bought a Haworthia Tessellata – mostly because it had the tallest and longest train of buds. We can’t remember its full name and often call it the “red alligator plant”.
As we watched the flowers bloom one after another, a friend from Singapore told us that the stalk and flowers were sucking up energy from the plant. Learnt something new! After the last flower, we cut its stalk off. A few weeks of absence later, two very notable things happened.
Firstly, some leaves have turned green! Secondly, a cute baby plant appeared underneath the tiny little pot!
Does that mean we ought to grow it sideways now?
