Succulent plant with two more or less long opposite leaves of dark green color and in some varieties rough to the touch. In the variegated form it has the typical paler areas in the exact points where the chlorophyll is absent: these characteristics will never be the same from one plant to another, therefore each exemplar will be absolutely unique! The name Gasteria derives from the bizarre shape of their flowers, similar to that of the stomach. The inflorescences are up to 50 cm tall with light red flowers. G. amstrongii f. variegated, with prolonged exposure to the sun, is likely to take on brown colors, for this reason it is a succulent plant perfect for indoor environments.
