Gasteria get their name from the shape of the leaves, which is thought to resemble a stomach (hence the Greek prefix “gaster,” meaning “belly”).
Gasteria have typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
