Albuca villosa An attractive succulent bulb from South Africa long densely hairy leaves. The outer surface of the leaf has numerous long white hairs that are almost like fur. 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, meaning it dies back to the bulb. 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 are young (one year old) plants and the bulbs are still quite small. It will take another year or two before they are mature size. I'm selling a limited number of these little guys now for those of you who want an unusual species and don't mind the plants being small in exchange for a more affordable price. If you want a mature one check back here in next year or the year after and I'll happily sell you a bigger one for over 2x this price!
You will receive a plant shown in the last image. Plant shown in s 2.5" pot. The bulb is approximately 1/4" diameter. Note that the first two images show a mature plant.
Important Shipping Information

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.
