Gasteria acinacifolia

Whereas most Gasterias are found on dry rocky slopes -usually hiding under taller plants- this species is typical for sand dunes on the South African south coast, from Knysna eastwards to Port Alfred. Its large rosettes may become up to 75 cm tall and almost as much in diameter.
