This is a unique looking Gasteria with rounded, distichous dull green leaves that are only 1/2" in width. The plant tends to grow up until it gets top heavy and then it droops (grows on cliff faces in the wild of South Africa) and hangs down. It's a great Gasteria for hanging baskets. It looks a bit like a succulent orchid in shape.
