    Dark green to brownish intergeneric hybrid with large, pronounced whitish tubercles. A prolific brancher, given time. Forms clumps to 8 inches or more. Bulbils (little plantlets near the base of flower stalks) are common (at least half the inflorescences will produce them) and may be removed and used for easy propagation.

    Well behaved and relatively common in cultivation. May be misidentified or mislabeled, and confused with other Aristaloe hybrids. Parentage is said to be Aristaloe aristata x Gasteria batesiana. Pale pinkish, tubular flowers produced in abundance year round. Tolerates full sun (which tends to trigger brownish or sometimes reddish hues) in our mild climate.
