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 bracteata aka Ornithogalum longibracteatu aka pregnant onion

This albuca is not really an onion. The plantlets form under the outer skin, each one becoming a new plant. The flower has a long stem and beautiful green color. Albuca bracteata aka Ornithogalum longibracteatum, native to South Africa, is an interesting plant the resembles a lily. The ovate green bulb is often semi-exposed (only partly underground) and exhibits a peeling, paper-thin epidermis. New offsets "burst" through the papery skin, thus the common name "Pregnant Onion". Long, straplike leaves give the appearance of an onion plant. Long floral stalks, sometimes over 3' in height, are topped by many small white flowers with green midstripes. Good indoor plant, but also can handle landscape conditions. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.

This is a mature plant -
