We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. Give
the roots opportunity to reachdown for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at
the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

We Update Weekly, always something to do on our website

Albuca spiralis

Albuca spiralis is in the Hyacinthaceae family ~ given it's name by Carl Linnaeus the younger in 1786, and is found in the Cape Province, South Africa on the sand plains. It's a winter-grower, and doesn't need much water in the summer. The bulb will grow to 25 centimetres and the corkscrew leaves to 50 centimetres. The fine bell-shaped flowers are white-greenish. It can be reproduced both by clusters and seeds. The difference between spiralis and namaquensis is that the foliage of the namaquensis is described as hairy or scaly, and spiralis is smooth and the leaves are fatter, not so wiry as namaquensis. Winter grower, bulb with narrow, feathery deciduous leaves and long bloom stalks. It is similar to Ornithogalum longibracteatu aka pregnant onion in the way new bulbs push through the existing bulb's skin. The upright flowers have white tepals with green keels, and the inner tepals are yellow-tipped.
