We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. 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 different paces 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 -
