Hi Jane,

The flower looks as though it is a Gasteria, but they are not quite open and when they are should have a bulbous (stomach) base. Can you post a pic of the plant?

Could be one of the G. bicolor variants.

Yes, closely related to G. bicolor. Rapidly clustering with matt, acute leaves, I'm pretty sure this is Gasteria doreeniae, known from only one locality.

Best wishes,

Hi
Thanks Derek.
I've had it for ages. Never flowered before. But great to identify, especially by one who knows! Thank you.
