That is a pretty one Alex. I like Gasterias, they enjoy our cool weather and handles the winter rains. It does pout when we get into the super hot dry months, but it comes back nicely when cool Fall weather returns all the way to Spring. It really digs into the rocky surface:
My Gasteria is called Gasteria armstrongii:
This was taken in early Sept 2014, mommy plant getting cruncy dry, since it was after a long dry summer, but it made new babies

Liking all the pictures! Here's the biggest Gasteria around here at the moment (yesterday stripped of all its offsets and soon to be planted in the ground). 4 year old seedling, 10" pot.

I was a little iffy at first with gasteria but I've grown quite fond of my little warty. I normally have it shaded amongst the foliage of other plants it seems to like it there where it just gets dappled sunlight. The leaves on the offsets where paper thin when I bought it, I'm starting to see them fatten up a little now.
