This genus is easy to grow but not so easy to grow clean. Black spots seem to be its biggest problem. As this plant grows in mineral rich soils we tried adding minerals to its soil mix. To a large extent this has solved the problem. These plants do almost all their growing from Fall to Spring. Light shading and less water (but no dry pot) works well in Summer. A very good book for excellent information and pictures is "Gasterias of South Africa" by E. J. van Jaarsvild.

These plants grow stout and fat if the soil is NOT rich and you don't use fertilizer. Extra grit (small gravel) mixed in the soil helps the excess water drain out faster. If underpotted when young will also produce thicker, fatter stems. Water well when in leaf or flower, a little less when (and if) they are dormant. Lightly squeeze body with fingers - if soft, not enough water. Should be firm all year long. Keep above 500F.

A tall stem with a umbel of 3" long, blue-green flowers will appear after the winter dormant period. Nice seed grown with apx. 6" leaves and 1"-2" bulb.$8.50
Very satisfying plant to grow. As a rule of thumb - if you can bend tip of leaf easily it likes more shade. If tip is stiff - it likes more light. Always looks better if not in full sun.

A clone is a single plant grown from a single seed. Every plant grown from a seed is an individual clone. Like people, one in a thousand plants is so different and beautiful it stands out from all the rest. It is not a hybrid. It is propagated by cuttings so none of the unique characteristics are lost. Every cutting is genetically identical to the clone it is cut from. So, to set apart these very special plants we call them "Super Clone".
