Gasteria bicolor v. bicolor

This plant is widely distributed in the eastern Cape and is typical for the subtropical thicket of the area. I has a short leafy stem up to 20 cm tall and slightly twisted leaves with a sharp off-center tip.
The inflorescence is quite impressive: 1-1.5 m tall, with up to 8 side-branches.
