Not sure exactly which forum this belongs in (I apologize), but I wanted to share my new Albuca spiralis 'Frizzle Sizzle'! I'm so excited, I have wanted one for a long time!

Love It! Lovey dubby Is that the flower? Or someone elses?

My Albuca is Albuca Augrabie Hills...not as pretty as the curly tops yours have, but I like their chubby base, reminds me of an onion Big Grin
It grows more actively here during the cool season:

Okay so now my A. spiralis is starting to slowly uncurl??? I looked up information on this and I read that in warm/moist environments they straighten out and in cool/dry environments they curl up.

Any thoughts/experience with this? I have only watered it once since I got it. It is in a well-draining soil and pot.

Okay here is a pic of my Albuca.... the tips have uncurled and are starting to turn brown at the tips. Is it just struggling to acclimate to its new environment now that I have brought it home?? Thanks!

It could be acclimating, or if it is like my Albuca going dormant at this time of the year.

Hello Sonyab971, welcome to NGA! Sorry I cannot id your plant, but we do have a forum called Plant ID, that is the best area to post your photo.
