I bought my xGasteraloe ‘Flow’ in 2016. I can’t remember where I bought it, though. There isn’t much online about this plant so I am not sure what to write about it. Imagine me being at a loss for words…

The xGasteraloe ‘Flow’ is a really neat and tidy plant. All those white specks are sticking up making the leaves feel kind of like sandpaper.

USEFUL INFORMATION:
Origin: Hybrid between Gasteria and Aloe
Zones: USDA Zones 9a-12
Height: 6-8”
Light: Sun to part shade. Well, I grow my Aloe in light to part shade because I don’t like them burning in to much sun.
Soil: Average, well-drained soil. Potting mix with extra pumice or grit to some small gravel. Add extra perlite, too.
Water: Average water during the warmer months and not much in the winter.
Dormancy Period: Although summer dormant, they will grow somewhat. They grow mainly during the spring and autumn months and a little in the winter.

Although this plant looks like it had a rough summer it is doing very well. Looks like a few crickets gave the leaves a sample.

I measured the plants after they were brought them inside for the winter on October 17, 2017. xGasteraloe ‘Flow’ measured 4″ tall x 6″ wide. Every year when bring plants inside, there is at least one pot the ants chose to settle in. This year was this pots turn so I left it in the basement for a while. After a couple of weeks I checked and the ants were gone. Hmmm… Wonder where they went? It also has several offsets.

I will continue adding more photos and information about my xGasteraloe ‘Flow. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, I would like to hear from you.
