Description

Long known and very popular among succulent fanciers is a peculiar looking plant with two-ranked, dull-green, leaves densely roughened with small, pearly-white excrescences and with grooved upper surfaces. It is probably the best-known example of a Gasteria species with very rough leaves. Stemless, Leaves can be upto15 cm long, 1-5 cm wide at the base, fleshy, triangular-lanceolate, rarely tongue-shaped, leaf apex obtuse or acute.

Environment

Bright light, but not direct sunlight.. White or yellow leaves usually signify too much sun. Water evenly and generously in the summer, letting the soil media dry out between waterings. In the winter, reduce watering, but do not stop watering. Never allow water to collect in between the leaves. Use a fast-draining potting soil mixed with sand.

Landscape Uses

Make excellent potted plants and also these species grows on rocky outcrops and are good houseplants, in grasslands or pampas, on plains and walls.

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.
