Gasteria batesiana

Gasteria batesiana is a favorite among collectors because of it's amazing leaves and relatively easy care. Cliff dwellers in nature, they of course prefer a well-drained substrate. The leaves are stiff and somewhat brittle but are a very rewarding plant to have in the collection.
This is a recent close-up taken of one of the plants in the main greenhouse.
