Albuca bracteata - Pregnant Onion

This listing is for 5 seeds of this species

A small bulbous plant from South Africa, a member of the Squill family, this adapts well to growing in the Northern Hemisphere.  It grows to around 40 cm or so tall with a tuft of green narrow leaves arising from the bulb.  The flowering stem grows to about 65 cm tall carrying manywhite flowers with green contrasts.  The flowers last for several days, with the flowering period.  Known locally as the pregnant onion due to the large number of offsets this bulb produces.  These can be left to produce a large clump or they can be used to propagate the plant

It is easy to grow from seed and may take 2 years before it reaches flowering size.  It is reasonably hardy,  so it could be grown in a pot and brought under cover during the colder weather or left in situ with a covering to keep out the worst of the weather.  It prefers a soil with a Neutral to slightly acidic nature.  The soil should be free draining as this mimics the soil found in its habitat.  It prefers a place in the open, where it can benefit from full sun.
