This one of the most unusual plants as it looks like spiral grass. This distinctive-looking succulent plant is native to South Africa. It adds a touch of fun to your interior. During late winter, this little plant begins growing foliage. This is when the unique twists and curls appear creating a fascinating look. It carries flower stalks at the center bearing green flowers, sometimes yellow flowers, on individual flower stalks. After flowering, this plant enters dormancy for the summer season.
- Bright direct light to partial shade.
- During growing season water once a week or just enough to keep its soil evenly moist but not soggy. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- The frizzle sizzle plant prefers well-drained soil.
- This plant is not frost hardy, and cold temperature might damage its bulb. The minimum temperature required is 15° C.
- Dry and cold conditions encourage tightly curled leaves, but the tips of the leaves stay up straight during warm conditions.
- Albuca Spiralis produces stalks with drooping, creamy yellowish-green vanilla-scented flowers. While the plant is flowering, the tips of the plant's leaves will start to turn brown or dry. This is a natural process. Dry tips can be cut off.
- Fertilise Albuca Spiralis with balanced and diluted liquid feed.
- If you start noticing leaves are not so curly, consider these three factors: possible overwatering, lack of enough sunlight or the plant has just finished blooming.
