New leaves appear individually over time from the centre of the plant, flattening older leaves and pushing them outward in a spiral fashion.The leaf colour may be variable depending on the habitat and climatic conditions: deep green in good years or chocolate brown when plants have experienced drought stress. White markings, spots or blotches that form irregular transverse bands, decorate both surfaces of the densely overlapping leaves. The leaf margins have closely spaced small teeth along a white horny edge. The flowers are orange, arranged in a raceme of around 2030 cm in height.

Gonialoe variegata is a very attractive plant for garden and container planting. It is easy to grow in light shade and make a great, almost no care houseplant although, without bright enough lighting can become leggy and pale but looks it's best when grown in full sun. Its main growing periods are spring and autumn. Keep relatively dry, careful watering is required, as it is prone to rot if overwatered, especially in the winter months.
