Plant Care Guide

Light

As with most succulents, Gasteria grow best in full sun or partial shade. In hot summers, more shade may be necessary.

Water

Gasteria are very drought-tolerant and require the soil to mostly dry out between waterings. However, if plants go too long without water their leaves will shrivel and pucker.

plantcare-icon-care-easy

Level of Care

Easy! Just place in bright sunlight and don't overwater.

air-purifying-1

Air Purifying

Gasterias remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.

Fertilizer

Feed once a year in the spring with a mild cactus fertilizer.
