This is a hybrid Gasteria. More recent pics (larger plants) here. The texture on the leaves is quite interesting. These are 3 gallon (10 inch) pots.

The seed parent was this plant, the pollen parent was a green leafed plant.

Here is a sibling from the same cross which looks more like the pollen parent.

Attractive banner and a nice series of photos to document and educate. Thumbs up
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

Baja, very cool banner!
