Aloe ‘Flow’ is a gasteraloe, hybrid between Gasteria verrucosa and Aloe. Gasterias have been in cultivation for hundreds of years and can be easily crossed with aloe, which gives rise to a number of hybrids (gasteraloe) in addition to the species that are generally available.  Aloe ‘Flow’ has distinctive, thick and oblong leaves covered with white wart-like protrusions and that is typical to Gasteria verrucosa species. The Aloe and Gasteria plants are native to South Africa.

Aloe ‘Flow’ plants are fairly easy to grow and they make an excellent potted plants. Gasterias in nature grow in lightly shaded conditions with an excellent drainage. As a result, they are adapted to relatively lower light conditions than some more well-known succulents and are good houseplants. Bright light is preferable, but not direct sunlight. White or yellow leaves usually signify too much sun. Watering should be year around, letting the soil media dry out between waterings.  Never allow water to collect in between the leaves.
