I am not a professional nor an expert in Gasteria taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. I can ship in the winter. I do have 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

Note: Been growing Gasteris for many decades and now it time for me to start thining out the stock plant some I'll be adding more soon. Sorry, the lighting on my photos wasn't as good as I wanted this time. Some of the color on the left are a little washed out. All my Gasteria are grown in very bright greenhouse.

    Gasteria 'Bronze Knuckles' - Gasterias are often indiscriminately hybridized in southern California by local hummingbirds. Therefore, open-pollinated seed (as opposed to that from controlled pollination) is rarely worth keeping or sowing. When set on a desirable species like G. armstrongii, however, one might be tempted to try some. That is the history of this new cultivar which appears to be a hybrid of G.nitida var. armstrongii and G. bicolor var. liliputana. The latter species lends its glossiness and dwarf, offsetting habit to the dark foliage-color of the former. This miniature clumper is deep green in shade but can blush a lovely bronze color with more light, hence the cultivar name. The rosettes of recurved leaves are at first distichous but become rosulate. Divisions of HBG 97466, one of a batch of mostly true seedlings from seed harvested by one of our more pugnacious volunteers whose wings beat nearly as fast as the pollinator. Nursery cultivar.

  Gasteria  carinata ssp. verrucosa - Long known and very popular among succulent fanciers Gasteria carinata var. verrucosa (more commonly known as Gasteria verrucosa) is a peculiar looking plant with two-ranked, dull-green, leaves densely roughened with small, pearly-white excrescences and with grooved upper surfaces. It is probably the best-known example of a Gasteria species with very rough leaves. The name verrucosa, signifies warty or rough. The most popular form has the leaves being completely covered with white tubercles, and in some forms, the tubercles forming ornamental stripes of white bumps over both the ventral and dorsal surfaces. It is one of the most variable species in the genus. Variability includes a very large form (leaves up to 280 mm long) at Infanta (Breede River mouth) and a form with linear, channelled leaves at Herbertsdale.
