Gasteria batesiana

This is an easy to grow species with outstanding rough leaves. With too much sun or stress, the leaves lose their green color (like this plant which has been in very bright light and was stressed with less than optimum water during the winter). But, hey, in our greenhouse we couldn't even get to it this winter! It prefers a little shade and some water during the winter. (Handle with care, as the leaves are very brittle!)
