Never heard of Gasperia, perhaps it was meant to be Gasteria which is in the Aloe family.

Gasteria is in the sphodelaceae http://www.desert-tropicals.com/Plants/Asphodelaceae/Gasteria.html where as Clivia is in the Amaryllidacea http://www.dragonagro.com/dapclivia.htm ... similar to apples & oranges, although both round are totally different.
