Gasteria species is an unusual succulent that has small and compact leaves. It is native to South Africa, where they thrive in bright and indirect light and well-drained soil. Gasteria is known for its textured leaves, but some are rough to touch.
It is great for beginners and perfect for indoors. It has dark green leaves, is fat, and hard, has different patterns, and colors, and blooms a beautiful flower in spring as they mature. You can grow them indoors and outdoors.
Allow the soil to dry before watering them, and make sure there is an excellent draining hole in the pot to prevent root rot. Fertilizing them once a month during their growing season using a cactus and succulent fertilizer will help them grow faster and healthier.
Gasteria species plants are very popular houseplants can be grown indoors or outdoors and are cheerful and with exotic appearance and are fairly easy to care for. Gasteria like their sister Hawothias originate from South Africa. Gasteria can be found in the Eastern Cape Province and the provinces of KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, and the Free State. The Eastern Cape has the largest density of Gasteria succulent plants to its name, but some varieties are also found in the Western Cape province. They are also found in some parts of Namibia. Gasteria succulent plants have thick, fleshy, triangular, or oblong leaves. Their tips might or might not taper into a sharp point. The Gasteria flower is unique. It’s tube-shaped, but the part close to the stalk flares into a bulbous shape that tapers to a thin point as it grows. This transition from bulbous to thin is often accompanied by a recurve that results in a stomach-like shape. Protect from frost. Main picture is of my mother plant, all others are shown here in 2.5″-3″ pots (for size reference) and pictures are of the actual plants being sold. First customers will get the larger plants. Plant may ship bare root.
It is particularly easy to grow and rarely affected by common succulent pests and diseases. Strong, drought-tolerant roots will grow if they have great drainage and infrequent water. Pick deep containers with drainage holes and a gritty, well-draining soil that is 50% to 70% mineral grit (coarse sand, pumice, or perlite). Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole and allow the soil to completely dry before watering again.
