Albuca hallii Family: Asparagaceae. A truly unusual and rare succulent bulb. The leaves smooth, flat, and most notably spiraled into a curly-Q. Flowers are yellow and produced in the spring. Easy to grow.
This species is similar to A. spiralis, and in fact was circulating in the trade for a while under this name. The difference is that A. hallii blooms in the fall and has thicker, plastic like, dark green leaves that spiral like a corkscrew from the base. A. spiralis blooms in the spring, has more bluish green leaves that are straight at the base and start curling ~half way up the leaf. The leaves aren't quite as thick too.
This is a winter grower so water regularly (in succulent terms) from fall until spring, then cut back in the summer. Depending on your conditions it may drop its leaves in the summer or it may keep them. If it loses its leaves then keep the plant dry until the fall when it starts growing again. You can resume regular watering at that time. Protect from frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plant shown growing in a 3.5" pot.
Please note, the leaves have some yellowing at the tips. The plants are fine, it is just the remnants of a little stress from a heat wave early in the season.
