Hi!

I got a new office at work, and in that room stood an abandoned plant. I am going to take it with me home today to try and repot/divide it and give it some love and care. But I would love to get to know it some more, which is why I now wonder if anyone know what type of plant this is?

Best regards,
Anna from Sweden

I'm not sure, but the leaf shape and growth pattern remind me of gasteria. How about Klein Karoo Ox-Tongue (Gasteria brachyphylla var. brachyphylla)

Yes I agree with Deborah. They are tough plants and can take a bit of neglect (just as well!), but if you repot it you'll get more offsets and very likely a lovely flower stem as they do flower quite freely.

Yes, Gasteria but they are so hard to tell apart that Gasteria may be the best you can do.

Thank you so much everyone! I looked at pictures of those Gasterias and I agree, it must be one of those. I am very grateful for your help, and your friendliness Smiling
The repotting and dividing went really good, and I now have one big mother plant and 8 young ones Smiling
