Description

Gasteraloe 'Green Dew' is a rare intergeneric hybrid of cross between  Gasteria X Aloe. It is ornately decorated with a dense smattering of raised white dots & grows up to ​​5-40 cm in height. It has long pointed and triangular leaves that make the plant look even more attractive.Moderate stress from bright light and drought can induce flushing of orange and red tones. 

Gasteraloe 'Green Dew' blooms with pale coral-pink round rosettes.

Environment

Gasterhaworthia plants grow best in moist soil. Green Dew needs light shade to thrive. Direct sun exposure affects the growth of these plants. They do need great drainage and infrequent water to prevent rot.

These decorative little plants can be grown in interesting containers such as tea cups and even miniature baby shoes. Make sure the container had adequate drainage. If it doesn't, it might be a good idea to pop the plant out of its container and add a layer of gravel to the bottom to reduce the wicking action of the soil above.

Propogation

Gasteraloe is easily propagated by the removal of offshoots or by leaf cuttings in spring or summer. To propagate by leaf cuttings, remove a leaf and let it lie for about one month, giving the wound time to heal. Then lay the leaf on its side with the basal part buried in the soil. This leaf should root within a month or two, and small plants will form at the leaf base. They can also grown from seed.

Landscape Use

Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

 

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
