Product Details

Highlights

Ox Tongue (Gasteria glomerata): Slow-growing, dwarf Gasteria with stacks of firm, tongue-like leaves. Each plant stays under about 3.0" wide and 4.0" tall, but they can produce numerous offsets and develop into an 8.0" to 12.0" cluster. Its fleshy leaves and deep roots help it tolerate hot, dry summers in its South African habitat, so be sure to plant in deep, well-draining containers and water sparingly. Ox Tongue can send up a tall bloom stalk, from which dangle multiple coral, bell-shaped flowers.

This plant is also offered in a larger 3.5" pot.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors. Gasteria easily tolerate drought and low-light conditions, but they do need great drainage and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick deep containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
