Product Description

Weird and wonderful spiralling foliage, each bulb produces different foliage curl and each amazing. The spectacular leaves are adorned with pendant Galanthus like flowers from late winter into spring. They are tones of green and yellow with a soft, sweet, vanilla fragrance. Albuca 'Frizzle Sizzle' is an absolute conversation piece that will intrigue all who see it, and it grows just like you would any other succulent. Hailing from South Africa, this amazing plant is actually a bulb. Left in the soil they will gradually multiply to form a clump. What makes this clump so exciting is that every bulb produces a different variation of the spiral leaf formation. So the overall effect is very eye catching. The tightest spirals form in hot and dry situations with lots of light. Why do the leaves of Albuca 'Frizzle Sizzle' spiral? Well, it is a clever trick of nature to help the plant survive hot and dry conditions. Plant Albuca 'Frizzle Sizzle' in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. They are suitable for pots, where you should use a succulent or cactus potting mix. Give them plenty of sun. They like similar conditions to Succulents. In cool climates especially, shelter the plant from winter wet. Plant the bulb in a 3-4" pot with at least one hole for drainage with half of the bulb exposed above the soil and the sprout pointing up. Use a cactus and succulent soil. (70% peat, + coir - clay - sand) Water thoroughly, then keep evenly moist, but not too wet or dry. Water once every two weeks. You will receive two bulbs, they are approximately 0.5-1 inch in diameter (6/+cm circumference). No pot or soil included.
  • Native to South Africa. Albuca spiralis
  • You will receive 2 bulbs ready to plant
  • Water when on the dry side

    The two little bulbs aren't much to look at and I was worried that they wouldn't do anything, but within 3 days of planting they're sprouting roots. I'm excited to watch them grow.

    Purchased a total of FOUR (4) bulbs. The day following receipt, I potted all 4, and gave them a light missing, as we c have been enduring triple-digit temperatures for over a week. Today, 3 days since receipt. 2 of the 4 have already sprouted. Very pleased. Great plant resource. SMILES

    Little frizzle sizzle bulbs

    I was a little worried, when I received the bulbs, because they were small and looked a bit dry. But I planted them in the same pot, and now, 3 days later, I can see some green on the top of both of them - that was so quick. And now I am very excited to watch and see what they turn into. Thanks
