Haworthia diversifolia occurs in the Great Karoo from the Prince Albert district eastwards to the Willowmore district and possibly further, as well as areas around Beaufort West.
The plants seem to be related to Haworthia nigra, but the leaves are shorter and more compactly stacked on top of each other, similarly to Haworthia viscosa.
The cultivation of Haworthia diversifolia is not easy and the plants are often unhappy in cultivation. Propagation is from seed which is quite difficult to obtain.
Synonym: Haworthia nigra var. diversifolia.
