Gasteria are fun succulents, and ‘Little Warty’ is no exception! Its leaves are thick, covered in little “warts”. Gasteria are easily cross-bred with Aloes (where we get the hybrid Gasteraloes from).
Gasteria get their name from the shape of the leaves, which is thought to resemble a stomach (hence the Greek prefix “gaster,” meaning “belly”).
Gasteria have typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Gasteria ‘Little Warty’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in bright sunlight.
If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).
