Description:

A succulent plant with two opposite leaves, more or less long, of a dark green color and in some varieties rough to the touch. The name Gasteria derives from the bizarre shape of their flowers, similar to that of a stomach. The inflorescences are up to 50 cm high with light red flowers. G. amstrongii, with the prolonged exposure to the direct sun, may take on brown colors, for this reason it is a perfect succulent plant for indoor environments.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 7 °C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered and ventilated places during winter.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once every two months in autumn, and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well draining one, so to avoid rotting, for example a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
