I knocked out the tag moving the plants last week. For the life of me I can't seem to keep a plant tagged.

That is a nice looking gasteria. How much water does it get? It looks to me that there is moss growing on soil surface - I always thought that this means moister soil.
And how much light?

Thnx. Rina

It's in a regular well draining potting mix, not a gritty mix that most of my succulents are in and yes that's moss on the surface. It's been growing like this for several years and is doing quite well. It gets watered when it rains. Once it comes inside it will be watered infrequently. I have a couple gasterias in the same potting mix and one in a gritty mix.
