Native to southern Africa and relatives of Aloe, plants in the Gasteria genus are named after the red, sack- or stomach-like shape of the flower. Stemless, with spotted thick leaves arranged in pairs or spirals, gasterias are typically used as houseplants and tolerate low light levels. Cultivated gasterias are unlikely to bear flowers, which hang from arching stems in summer, but you may be lucky.
