Gasteria "Royal Wolfgang" is very similar to the "Zebra" Haworthia with white pronounced stripes across their narrow, pointy leaves. An interesting variety to collect, with over 60 species. If exposed to full sun it will develop a red/pink tint. Haworthia leaves are thick and use them to store water for long periods of time. The rosettes are star shaped and stemless. A great plant to grow in wide shallow planters. They easily reproduce multiple clumps of babies in their growing season that spread up to 6" wide. Suitable to grow indoors by a window. A rare plant to come upon and popular among plant collectors.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
