  • Posted by Baja_Costero (Baja California - Zone 11b) on Mar 4, 2019 10:34 PM concerning plant:
    Attractive Gasteria hybrid with dark green leaves marked by pale green streaks and lots of little pale, raised warts. The relative amount of dark green and light green may vary widely from one leaf to the next, and from plant to plant. The rosette reaches about 8 inches in strong light and offsets pretty regularly, with a moderate growth rate. This hybrid tolerates and enjoys lots of sun except during the brightest months, when it prefers part shade (or turns creamy or yellowish brown). Parentage: Gasteria batesiana x 'Old Man Silver'. A Cumming hybrid.
