Gasteria are very slow growing succulents. These succulents are native to South Africa and are very unique in their texture and growth habit. They are very closely related to Aloe species and can be hybridized to produce Gasteraloe hybrids. Gasteria are perfect for terrariums since they do not grow very fast. Some of the species in this family produce pups which can be removed and transplanted for propagation.
