Plant Summary

The dwarf ox-tongue, Gasteria bicolor, is a small succulent forming dense clumps of rosettes under 25mm tall. Its mottled strap-shaped leaves camouflage it amidst rocks and thickets. Pink-orange flowers on tall stalks bloom in winter and spring. Rare but not threatened, it thrives in arid areas with summer rainfall. Drought tolerant yet cold sensitive, provide well-drained soil and bright shade. Propagate by division, leaf cuttings or seeds. Flowers are edible and plants are used in traditional medicine.
