Water. Like other succulents, these plants don’t need much water. Allow the soil to almost completely dry out between waterings. If the plant gets rainfall outdoors, usually no supplemental watering will be necessary.
Just so, how do you care for a gasteria succulent?
Outdoor Gasteria plant care requires afternoon shade and possibly an all-day dappled sun area, depending on the climate. Gasteria glomerata and Gasteria bicolor may grow outdoors in the ground in some areas. As with all outdoor succulent plants, plant them in a quick-draining soil mixture to prevent root rot.
Herein, does gasteria like to be root bound?
They only require repotting every two to four years, preferring to be quite root bound – I recommend using a heavy pot, such as those made from terra cotta because these plants can be top heavy.
How do you save in gasteria?
Gasteria are best kept in a location with a few hours of either morning or evening sunlight to promote better growth habits. Dark locations, like several metres from a light source, must be avoided for the prevention of ‘heart rot’ and over-watering.
Make Sure Your Succulents Get Enough Light
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.

What does a death bloom look like? Death blooms come from the very very center (apex) of succulents like sempervivum, agave and some kalanchoe. If you see a bloom stalk (inflorescence) coming from somewhere else, like in between layers on an echeveria, it is a normal bloom and will not die after blooming.
A light feeding of manure tea, diluted fish emulsion, or a balanced fertilizer (15-15-15) help succulents grow lush and lovely. Be sure to dilute concentrated liquid fertilizers. Not doing so risks damaging roots. For container-grown succulents, use one Moo Poo tea bag per three gallons of water, steeped overnight.
