Haworthia sordida var. sordida (sordida means dirty appearance) is a blackish green Haworthia from the area between Steytlerville and Addo.
The plants are relatively difficult to cultivate and special care and good drainage is required. Growth is very slow and seedlings take many years to reach maturity.
In a greenhouse Haworthia sordida var. sordida loses its sandy dirty look after time, and the plants become notably handsome.
