Albuca bracteata

(Syn.: Ornithogalum longibracteatum, Ornithogalum caudatum), Pregnant Onion, False Sea Onion

Albuca bracteata


The pregnant onion is an old-fashioned novel houseplant that resembles an onion with numerous baby bulbs forming on its sides. A great conversation piece. A lot of people just adore this plant. It has long strap-like leaves that droop downward and tall wands of small white flowers striped in green. Makes a nice hanging basket. It's not really an onion and should NOT be eaten. Some individuals may have an allergic skin reaction. Native to South Africa and easy to grow outdoors in similar climates. Grow in part shade and allow soil to dry between waterings. Hardy to 25F. Asparagaceae


Beaucarnea recurvata

Ponytail Palm

Beaucarnea recurvata


New! Native to Mexico, closely related to Yuccas and thrive under the same conditions. Plants have dark green, grass-like leaves that are 1 inch wide by 6 foot long. They have swollen bases for water storage and can store water up to 1 year. Plants in nature will reach about 30 feet in height with a base about 12 feet across. In containers, they will only reach about 8 foot in height. They make an excellent houseplant if they are not over-watered. Only very old trees will produce this plant's inconspicuous creamy-white flowers. Needs full sun to light shade, with a well drained soil mix.

Nice large plants in 4 inch pots! Asparagaceae


Bowiea volubilis

Sea Onion, Climbing Onion

Bowiea volubilis


This bulb is a curiosity. It's neither from the sea or related to an onion, but instead is a member of the Asparagus family. The long-lived pale green bulb can grow up to 10 inches across, from which emerges a dense froth of lacy stems climbing up to 6 feet in height (resembling an asparagus fern). In winter, the stems die back as it enters dormancy. It is treated as a succulent and thrives on neglect. Plant in well-draining soil, only half buried, and keep on the dry side in winter. Best in partial shade. In cold climates it needs to be brought indoors during the winter. Be cautious as the bulb is reported to be toxic if ingested. Native to southern and eastern Africa. Asparagaceae
