The Beautiful Surprises of House PlantsOn December 21, 2023 by Pam
I love having plants in my house. I have great light in my house and my husband, Charles is expert at watering. In the summer, I move my plants outside and enjoy them by the pool and in winter, they are all over – in the kitchen, dining room living room and bedroom. A couple of days ago, I noticed that one of the plants in the windowsill of my kitchen was growing this beautiful, tall flower. It is called the Gasteria carinata is a small to medium-sized aloe-like plant bearing triangular, mottled, channelled leaves and racemes of pinkish flowers during spring. It is endemic to the eastern part of the Western Cape, growing in dry fynbos vegetation. It thrives in cultivation and is easily grown from leaf cuttings or seed.
I found a few pictures of it on line….
…and I took some pictures of my own plant…
