Nice Little Plant

This little darlin' was still in bloom when I received it and was packed so well that it barely noticed being shipped. Thank you!

Albuca osmynella Review

Advertised as a 3.5 inch pot came in smaller less developed plant. Business made an adjustment for me but I'm very selective and would not have purchased had real dimensions been known.

Matched with Haworthia aracnoidea

In this order, I also bought Haworthia aracnoidea xiphiophylla (837) amongst many plants. These two seemed to go together well in a 5 by 8 semi-shallow indigo blue pot I had. While their foliage contrasts, I see similarities in growing habits/needs, so I anticipate they will be nicely complementary - yet different - after being established for a while. As I write, it's been only a week - so far so good.
