Albuca foetida Family: Asparagaceae. An attractive succulent bulb from South Africa long curly leaves. The leaves have small hairs on them and are straight on the lower half and tightly curled at the tips. The stronger the light the more curly the leaves will be. The bulb forms new bulblets regularly. You can leave them together to make a big clump or separate them to make new plants. Flowers are yellow and produced in the spring. Easy to grow. It is a winter grower, which means it will grow from fall to spring and is completely dormant in the summer. Water regularly (in succulent terms) from fall until spring, then cut back or stop all together in the summer. It usually drops its leaves during the dormant period. Protect from frost.
Please note: These plants are currently dormant and you will receive a dormant bulb. Pot it up but keep it dry. In late August or September it should start growing again. Start watering when you see new growth.
You will receive a plant shown in the images or one similar. They are large mature bulbs, most of which have 2 or more growing points. Plants shown in a 4" pot.
Note that I previously sold this plant under the name "Albuca namaquensis". I recently discovered they were misidentified and A. foetida is the correct name.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
