Gasteria bicolor - Lawyer’s Tongue
Gasteria bicolor is a succulent variety with green, strap-like leaves covered in a flurry of tiny white spots. The rigid, curved leaves initially grow in a distichous pattern (along one plane) but may spiral out as they mature. The leaf tips will flush to a reddish-orange hue when exposed to lots of sunlight.
- Light: Filtered Sunlight – This plant needs bright, filtered light with ample airflow so place in front of a window.
- Water: Not Thirsty – This plant can go several weeks without water so only water it when the soil completely dries out.
- Tip: This plant needs porous soil with adequate drainage.
