Gasteria verrucosa

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. All of our plants are grown under the same conditions, although not all the plants are the same. You will receive a similar plant in size and shape to the ones in the pictures. Our plants are hand-picked and carefully selected to bring you the best quality possible.

The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Cultivation and propagation: Gasteria verrucosa is invaluable for collections as it will tolerate shade. Because of its creeping habit, it makes a nice hanging plant.

Growth rate: It is a relatively slow-growing plant that offsets to form in age small clusters.

Soil: It is tolerant of a wide range of soils and habitats but prefers a very porous potting mix to increase drainage. You can grow a plant in a 10-15 cm pot for years and have perfectly happy plants. For best results, use a shallow pot.

Exposure: Needs light shade to shade, but will take full sun part of the day (with some sun exposure the leaf develops a nice reddish tint and remains compact)

Watering: During the hot summer months, the soil should be kept moist but not overly wet. During the winter months, water only when the soil becomes completely dry. Wet soil quickly causes root and stem rot, especially during chilly winter months. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Low ambient humidity is always needed.

Hardiness: During the winter months, water only when the soil becomes completely dry. Frost hardy to -1°C (Or less). It grows well in Mediterranean gardens where frost is not too severe.
