Related to Aloe, Gasteria are native to South Africa with the bulk of the varieties found in Eastern Cape province. Gasteria are often paired with Haworthia as they have similar requirements and both work well indoors being able to handle lower light than many succulents.
'Romeo' is a larger, distichous form of Gasteria, which simply means the leaves are arranged alternately in two opposite vertical rows.
Gasteria is a genus of relatively rare, aloe-like succulents. It sometimes goes by the colloquial name "ox tongue," after the long, rough texture of the leaves. The plant is named for the sac-like shape of its flowers, which are supposed to resemble a stomach. The genus is native to South Africa, where it grows in lightly shaded conditions with excellent drainage. As a result, the plant tolerates lower light conditions than most other well-known succulents, making them very good houseplants. Depending on the species, gasteria leaves are often marked with interesting patterns and coloration.
