Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On May 29, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Suckering succulent with slight pebbly stiff, glaucous leaves- a beautiful plant. If slowly accliimated, it can take a good deal of sun. One of the more resistant Gasteria to fungal leaf spot- relatively easly plant to keep good looking. This is a slow growing species but one of the best for filling a pot and having it flow over the edges eventually. It's a profuse suckerer. Flowers typical for Gasterias but with more orange than most: small, dainty, ewer- shaped orange flowers with green-brown tips (bicolor).
