Gasteria ID please

Post by MikeT » Thu Feb 04, 2021 2:52 pm

This came from Ikea just before the current lockdown. The label says Gasteria carinata. It may be correct, but doesn't quite seem to match most photos: maybe it's within the range of what is described as a variable species.

Hi Mike,

Looks like one of the many variable leaf patterns you see with Gasteria 'Little Warty'.

I agree with Tony, looks like ‘Little Warty’.

Thanks, both

I think it's safe to print a label off now.

Agreed as above. I've had a Little Warty for a couple of years. Mine blooms reliably.
