Description:

Pleasant succulent that develops in a thick rosette or, sometimes, in leaves that grow in opposite pairs (more typical for the genus Gasteria). It has an elongated and lanceolate foliage, slightly pointed at the apex; the real strength is, however, the epidermis, which is tinged with an almost black color extremely peculiar. When exposed to abundant sunlight, G. pseudonigricans takes on showy purple-reddish shades that make it even more showy and contrast pleasantly with the long spikes of white-pink inflorescences.

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.
