Gasteria

Aloaceae Gasteria Duval
 Pl. Succ. Hort. Alenc. 6 (1809); Haw. Syn. Pl. Succ. 85 (1812).
   Members of the Gasteria genus, named for their stomach shaped flowers, generally prefer no supplementary water during winter, and regular, but not excessive watering for the rest of the year.  The majority of species prefer light shade and should be protected from direct sunlight and frostPropagation is done by division or cuttings, depending on the species, and by seed, with germination usually occurring within 1 week, up to one month.

Gasteria  hybrid

   The leaves of this hybrid will grow to about 10" long, and be quite thick. This is a robust hybrid that doesn't require much care, and will handle drought quite well. This plant will eventually become a large clump, with lots of pups, plantlets, and flower quite heavily.
