Well… Houseplant… Singular.
Last year I started growing an Albuca Spiralis – Frizzle Sizzle’ for the wife because she loved the amazing spiralling of the succulent like leaves. I started it growing in time for her Birthday, well… It looks like it may flower for her Birthday too!
I was looking at the plant today to see if it needed watering or not yet. (As it was it did!) but bugger me if I didn’t see a flower spike growing!
Now the wife has had it in a gentle clasp as the plant tends to want to lean over a little. The plant is still very young and not very strong yet. Also… I’m a little worried as it has yet to have a dormant period so far. Maybe it’s just one of those weird things because the plant is indoors and so in a semi-controlled environment… I don’t know, but I’m still happy!
The plant will likely need propping if the flowers do grow, that spike really does get a lot bigger than the rest of the plant and with the root structure not being be that strong yet I will have to play it by ear. I just hope I don’t get forced to cut the spike.
