Description:

Extremely peculiar succulent, consisting of a bulb almost completely exposed above the ground and generally covered with whitish paper-like layers that protect it and, when they fall, show a lively bright light green epidermis. From the bulb depart many nastriform leaves, extremely thin and even one meter long, that grow facing upwards and then fall back into wonderful waterfalls of an intense emerald green. Starting from late spring, a stem at the apex of the bulb grows from the center of the bulb, which will bloom characteristic whitish flowers with green finishes along the petals.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 5 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

A well-draining and at the same time nourishing soil is an optimal solution. A mix of 60% of peat and 40% of inert materials is a perfect combination.

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