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.
*** Shipped Bareroot, unless ordered with clay pot.
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.

Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging
We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you.
Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Disapointed in what was sent to me.
I ordered the 4 inch plant because I wanted a plant a little more established in the pot, but when it arrived it was not even in a pot with soil, it was just wrapped in tissue paper. I planted it right away, but 2 days later when I looked at it, the entire top of the plant had turned brown. For the price I paid, I was expecting a plant in a pot and a much larger plant. Very disappointing.
