Gasteria rawlinsonii. One of the very few non mammillaria's I have in the collection and only because it sits under the bench. Got this many years ago has a single stem from Cok in Holland.

One of my favorite Gasteria's. I grow mines (I've got 4 different clones) in full sun; grown that way they get a nice brown colour. Last weekend I noticed the first flower buds on the largest plant. Growth is quite slow. In my opinion your plant would be better off with a little more light/sun.

This has produced flower stalks before but they have always dried up.
I have now moved this to a more lighter area but I find it will not take full sun, it burns badly, has you can see on the older growth.
