Description:

Peculiar succulent formed by a glossy light green bulb, usually almost completely exposed out of the ground and often covered by a sort of paper sheath that protects it in cold periods. With growth it can reach over 10 cm in diameter, often tending to cluster with the formation of new small bulbils on the sides of the main one. From the center of the bulb, during the vegetative season, beautiful ornamental leaves emerge in pairs, narrow and even more than half a meter long, which end in showy points and tend to fall in wonderful cascades of a beautiful emerald green. Its inflorescences also grow together with the leaves, which bloom at the apex of long peduncles from the center of the bulb and are arranged in peculiar conical clusters, similar to real extremely fragrant spikes consisting of small star-shaped flowers of a delicate white streaked with green.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light all year long, however avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it survives even in temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry.

Water moderately only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once every two weeks in spring and summer, once every two months in autumn and completely suspend watering in winter.

A well-draining soil is an optimal solution, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
