  •  Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ has thick, tightly curled leaves on short stems that arise from an underground bulb.

     Fragrant yellow flowers appear in spring on flower spikes that are adorned with10-20 blooms per spike. The blossoms have a light vanilla fragrance. Grow in full sun and allow the soil to dry out between waterings.

     There are no pest or disease problems with ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ so it makes an ideal home garden plant that’s distinctive and eye-catching.

     Albuca spiralis is a summer-dormant plant. Therefore, don't be alarmed if it loses its foliage and may not look as pretty as pictured. As long as the bulb is still healthy, in winter, the leaves will grow back and flowers will come in spring. Make sure to not overwater or feed the the bulb after it goes dormant and store it in a cool, dry location.

     Keep in mind, when Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ sends up its flower stalks in spring, it often causes the tips of the leaves to brown. This is a natural occurrence. If you don’t want this to happen, simply remove the flower stalks as soon as they start to grow to prevent leaf tip browning.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.

     Notice:

    Low light and excessive moisture will cause soft, floppy, non-curly leaves. Albuca ‘Frizzle Sizzle’ does best in full sun to keep the curls compact and green. Place the plant at a well ventilated spot where the plant can receive as much bright light as possible. You can also purchase grow lights if you live in cold area and can't afford leaving the plant outdoor. It's a winter grower, so if you keep it indoor, the heat may trigger the plant to think that summer has come and cause the plant to go dormant.

I am very happy.

It arrived in very good condition and it has several little new onions growing. I hope I don't **** it.

Such a cute plant!

Although the plant was a bit dry it seems to have perked up after keeping it under a dome for a few days. The packaging was perfect and there were no problems spilled potting mix all over the plant because it was shipped bare root inside the pot and the potting mix was in another plastic bag.
