Gasteraloe variegata

Gastrolea is a Gasteria/Aloe hybrid, and is properly called a Gasteraloe. It is a very compact plant with thick, smooth, toothless variegated/striped leaves coloured yellow and green. It grows relatively slowly, can get quite large with time with rosettes up to 30 cm across.
Cultivation and Propagation: Gasteraloe is a long-lived plant of easy culture which makes it a good houseplant and can be an excellent subject for the beginning gasteriaphile (it can grow easily on window sills, verandas and in miniature succulent gardens where it is happy to share its habitat with other smaller succulent plants).
Exposure: It needs light shade to shade, but will take full sun part of the day.
Soil: It prefers a very porous potting mix to increase drainage.
Waterings: During the hot summer months, the soil should be kept moist but not overly wet.
Fertilization: The plants are fertilized only once during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer diluted to ½ the recommended strength. During the winter months, water only when the soil becomes completely dry.
Hardiness: Frost hardy to -1°C (Or less).
