Growth Rate

The lizard tail is both a small and slow-growing plant. It grows in small clusters in wide and shallow dishes.

Flowering

The white, orange, yellow, or red colored flowers are truly gorgeous. While they usually bloom in summers, they are irregularly seen growing throughout the year.

Watering and Feeding

Gasteraloe Beguinii is used to live with little or no rain throughout the year. You can water the plant with a few drops once every two or three weeks. Feed them with an organic liquid fertilizer once or twice a year.

Soil

A good cactus compost is a must. In this case, create a loamy compost for good drainage. The soil needs to be sandy and pebbly.

Hardiness

Gasteraloe Beguinii grows best in the spring season. It can handle cooler temperatures between -6.7° C (20° F) to 10° C (50° F). As far its hardiness zone is concerned, it is 9b to 11b.

Light

The lizard tail needs at least two to three hours of direct and full sunlight every day. While you can set them up in a sunny spot, they can also grow under artificial lighting.

Propagation

The lizard tail can either be propagated through offsets or leaf cuttings. Leaf cuttings are most preferred since it may take the plant years before it produces offsets.

These plants are most known for their ability to survive with minimal water, feeding, and nurturing. People say that most plant lovers kill them with too much kindness! Their adaptability is what makes them low maintenance.
