Welcome to the world of magnificent Gasteria nigricans monstrose, also known as black gasteria or the sharkskin gasteria - a stunning perennial, evergreen slow-growing succulent that's bound to leave you in awe! This Gasteria plant is a true showstopper that belongs to the extraordinary Asphodelaceae family, and the genus of the fairly rare, aloe-like succulent Gasteria. 

Originating from the southern regions of Africa, specifically South Africa and Namibia, this unique Gasteria beauty boasts an unimaginably intriguing growing pattern that can grow up to 7 inches tall. It is a bushy and small succulent plant that has long, flat, and pointed leaves that arrange vertically and intertwine with each other.  These leaves are thick and fleshy, arranged in a rosette pattern that forms a striking contrast against its dark green to black coloration. It's like Mother Nature decided to throw caution to the wind and let her creativity run wild! 

Gasteria nigricans monstrose is a unique succulent plant known for its fascinating appearance.  The monstrose variety of this plant exhibits distorted growth, with irregularly shaped leaves that add an intriguing element to its overall aesthetic. With its compact size Gasteria nigricans monstrose is an ideal choice for both indoor and outdoor space. 

But wait, there's more! The coloring of this Gasteria succulent enchanting plant varies from deep shades of luscious greens to strikingly almost-black hues. And if that weren't enough, under moments of intense sun stress, reddish tones may even emerge – talk about drama! When it comes to Gasteria flowers, they bloom in pink color.  

During the hot summer months in their growing season, the soil should be kept moist but not overly wet as it causes root rot. These Gasteria plants are fertilized only once during the growing season in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. Use a specialized succulent potting mix to keep it healthy in USDA zones 9-11. During the winter months when it is dormant, reduce the amount of water. Gasteria can be easily propagated by the removal of offshoots or by leaf cuttings in spring or summer.
