Commonly known also as "climbing onion", this exemplar has a decidedly unusual and original look. It’s made up of a partially underground globe-shaped bulb, generally a nice light green hidden by whitish paper layers of old leaves that protect it. Extremely thin stems (with a diameter of a few millimeters) branch out from the bulb and develop with very peculiar branches: each small segment of the stem grows at right angles to the previous segment giving rise to a kind of extremely articulated network, tending to take on a climbing appearance in the presence of a support or pleasantly hanging in hanging pots. At the beginning of summer this jewel generates small whitish flowers that open at night and create a strong and pleasant contrast in the midst of the filiform structure of the complex!

Plant care:

It requires exposure to full sun or even partial shade, as long as it still receives a lot of light during all seasons.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and above all never below 5 ° C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered places during the winter.

It is advisable to always keep the soil moist enough, never dry, to prevent the bulb from drying out. Pay attention to stagnant water that could cause rot.

A strongly draining soil is optimal, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilizations, it will be sufficient to dilute fertilizer with watering once a year.
