Gasteria fuscopunctata is a small, clump-forming succulent featuring pointed, tongue-shaped leaves with splotches of white dots. The leaves are rigid and resilient.
Gasteria are slow-growing, low maintenance plants. Provide a well-drained soil away from reflected heat. Once established, water infrequently during the hot season. Ideal in landscapes and containers or is happy to adapt as a houseplant.

Gasteria is a genus of relatively rare, ​aloe-like succulents. It sometimes goes by the colloquial name "ox tongue," after the long, rough texture of the leaves. The plant is named for the sac-like shape of its flowers, which are supposed to resemble a stomach.

The genus is native to South Africa, where it grows in lightly shaded conditions with excellent drainage. As a result, the plant tolerates lower light conditions than most other well-known succulents, making them very good houseplants. Depending on the species, gasteria leaves are often marked with interesting patterns and coloration. The G. verrucosa species also have wart-like protrusions on its leaves.
