A group shot, note; many of the older leaves toward the base got burned back very badly, these plants, a few cacti and agaves were basically the only survivors, they were in an unheated greenhouse with a hole in the peak, it got down below zero a few nights, they were there for atleast 4 months, the whole winter! Their roots didn't even die, they weren't watered the entire time, likely the key to their survival. These plants are tough!
You can see the smaller plant still has flat, arching opposite leaves, these could be easily confused with several other gasteria at this stage, by next season this plant should begin to whorl and the leaves straighten and become triangled.
This is s funny angle, I know, but it shows the very unique shape that the leaves take on once the start their mature growth pattern.
I'd love to see what these plants would do in a more suitable climate, I've only seen them available here in the states in seed form
If your interested just tree me, I'm game to try plenty of different kinds of plants!
Thanks for looking
