Stacked, tongue-shaped leaves emerge from a central point on Gasteria ‘Sakura Fuji,’ fanning out in opposing directions instead of forming a traditional rosette shape. The leaves themselves are very thick and fleshy, striated with tones of deep green, light green, gray, and creamy white, and will together reach a maximum height of approximately 6 inches. Freely producing offsets from the base of the parent plant, over time this slow-growing variety will form a dense clump that will add a perfect layer of novelty and contrast to any succulent arrangement.
While all Gasteria can tolerate a greater degree of shade than most succulents, the variegation on ‘Sakura Fuji’ reduces the plant’s overall chlorophyll levels, meaning that it can benefit from at least morning sunlight – though afternoon shade would be more than acceptable. Due to the water content contained within its thick leaves, this variety requires thorough but infrequent watering to avoid predisposing its shallow root system to rot. Porous soil within a well-draining pot, coupled with ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, will further shield against excess moisture.
Hardy only to Zone 10, it is vital to protect ‘Sakura Fuji’s dense leaves from frost, which could otherwise result in permanent disfiguration.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
