x Gasteraloe ‘White Wings’
Gasteria x Aloe
x Gasteraloe Guillaumin is the accepted name for this intergeneric hybrid. It was named and described by André Guillaumin in Bulletin du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (Paris) in 1931.
I bought my x Gasteraloe ‘White Wings’ in 2016 at the same time I bought ‘Flow’. Neither plant had tags so I sent photos to a Facebook group and they were promptly identified.
Origin: Hybrid between Gasteria and Aloe
Zones: USDA Zones 9a-12
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.
The x Gasteraloe ‘White Wings’ looked a little strange to me. The way the eaves were curled inward made it look as if something was wrong with it, but that is just a characteristic of this variety.
Unfortunately, I have only one photo since this plant didn’t make it through the 2016-2017 winter. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, I would like to hear from you. There isn’t much online about this plant but maybe the links below will help a little.
