'Frizzle Sizzle' is best in full sun. Allow soil to dry between watering. Plant has no pest or disease problems.

When Albuca 'Frizzle Sizzle' sends up its flower stalks in spring, this will often cause the tips of the leaves to brown. This is a natural occurrence. If you don't want this, remove the flower stalks as soon as they start to grow.
