Warty distichous Gasteria, sibling to Gasteria 'Little Warty', with large raised areas of pale green or gray and smaller areas of dark green forming rough stripes along the leaves. These color patterns, as well as the surface texture that accompanies them, are variable from one leaf to the next. Leaf tips are truncate (flat). The rosette may grow to about 8 inches wide. This plant supposedly does not offset, but it can be forced to branch by coring and may also be propagated from leaves. Parentage: Gasteria batesiana x 'Old Man Silver'. A Cumming hybrid.
