Gasteria maculata 'Lawyer's Tongue'

Size

The thick, rounded leaves of Gasteria maculata 'Lawyer's Tongue emerge in opposing pairs stacked up a central stem, lending Gasteria maculata an already novel aesthetic. When this growth form is combined with the unique coloration of its leaves, which are rich green with a creamy white margin and light green ‘stippling’ across the leaf surface, the result is exceptional. Reaching up to 20 inches tall and wide, courtesy of a tendency to readily offset, this specimen is equally at home on a windowsill or as part of a container arrangement.

While Gasteria maculatacan tolerate more shade than many succulent varieties, it will flush to a crimson hue on the tips of its leaves when exposed to more direct sunlight – which will also encourage the plant to copiously send up stalks of orange, pink, or even green blooms! Otherwise extremely low maintenance, all this succulent asks for is a thorough but infrequent watering routine, a well-draining pot, and a porous soil mixture within which to take root.

During the winter months, be sure to protect this South African native from freezing temperatures, which could otherwise result in permanent damage to the fleshy leaves.
