Gasteraworthias are horticultural crosses between Gasteria and Haworthia. The shapes and sizes of these plants are quite variable due to the hybrid origin and usually halfway between the two parents.
Gasteraworthias bigeneric hybrids are usually diploids and have been received the status of new genus. Most of these plants have dark green spotted leaves. They are strong and easy to grow. The flowers of the genus Gasteria are hanging, tubular, red and yellow and are pollinated by birds, while those of the genus Haworthia are smaller, erect, oblique-limbed whitish and are often pollinated by bees. The flowers of Gasterhaworthias shows intermediate features, but unlikely to suit either pollinator. They are slow growing but long-lived plants of easy culture which makes them a good houseplant and can be an excellent subject for the beginning gasteriaphile.
