Description:

Very beautiful succulent, extremely ornamental, consisting of a small bulb underground or, sometimes, partially exposed, of succulent consistency and covered by a paper surface that wraps it like a protection. From the bulb depart extremely thin stems of a beautiful lively emerald green, similar to real blades of grass that, in bright and dry conditions, tend to curl like a corkscrew. This is a characteristic that the species shares with Albuca spiralis, from which it differs, however, mainly for the consistency of the stems: easily recognizable, the foliage of A. namaquensis is abundantly rough to the touch, often even covered by a thick and short layer of hair that helps to make the overall appearance of succulent almost silvery. In the midst of the lively green threads, wonderful bell-shaped flowers of a soft and characteristic yellow bloom.

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.
