Tulista pumila 'Donuts', also known as Haworthia pumila 'Donuts', is a beautiful small succulent that forms rosettes of green leaves…
The plant will produce offsets in the summertime. To start new plants, just pull away the number of offsets you want and pot them up as mature plants. Some gardeners like to let the offsets dry for a few days before repotting. They should already have a few small roots in place and will soon develop more.
Like most succulents propagate Haworthia from leaf cuttings.
Remove an individual leaf and allow it to dry in the open air for a few days to a week. Lay it on top of appropriate potting mixture with the base of the leaf buried very slightly.
It will soon begin forming roots and the tiny plant will start to grow from the base of the leaf.
If you have no parent plant, you can grow Haworthia from seeds. This is a slow process, though. It can take as long as five years for a plant to reach full maturity when grown from seed.
The majority of Old World succulent monocotyledons are grouped into the Aloaceae, a medium sized family of rosulate leaf succulents including Aloe, Astroloba, Bulbine, Chortolirion, Gasteria, Haworthia and Poellnitzia. The largest genus is Aloe with more than 400 species. The Aloaceae are distributed across southern Africa, Arabia, Madagascar and the Mascarene Islands. A few Bulbines are found in Australia.
Note: recent revisions of the Aloaceae (Alooideae) based on DNA analysis from which evolutionary relationships are inferred, split the genus Haworthia:
Haworthia - for soft leaved species from subgenus Haworthia
Haworthiopsis - 16 hard-leaved species from sub-genus Hexangulares
Tulista - 15 diverse species including subgenus Robustipedunculatae & Haworthia koelmaniorum plus Astroloba, Poellnitzia & Aloe aristata.
