Re: Gasteria, Aloe, Gasteraloe?

Thanks for all the great info, DustBunny! I wiil repot it this weekend per your instructions. It can get very humid here in the summer. Do you think that would hurt the plant?

Re: Gasteria, Aloe, Gasteraloe?

Does the Gasteria have a dormant season? Is it a summer or winter grower? I'm in the mid-Atlantic so I get all four seasons. Thanks!

Gasteria, Aloe, Gasteraloe?

I purchased this succulent this afternoon at Walmart and I'm not sure what it really is. It seems to me that it has characteristics of both a Gasteria and an Aloe. A confirmation would be great.
