This is a FUN plant to grow.
Do you like novelities and oddities; this is one!!
This is for ONE growing baby Pregnant onion.
The picture is of a mother pregnant onion.(She is not for sale)
It is about the size of a marble and it has sprouted.
It is about 3 months old.
You are receiving a bigger start of this p.o. and you save time.
Plant it and and when it grows bigger, it has babies.
It is Nicknamed-"Pregnant Onion"-for obvious reasons-Ornithogalum longibracteatum or sometimes Ornithogalum caudatum.
It grows from a bulb you plant with soil just covering the roots, so that bulb is above soil level.
The adult looks like a big round onion and strange is that it will grow the offsets (babies) under its outer skin-you can see it through the skin, and it will grow several at a time-
Plant the baby and and soon you will have a large bulb growing.
P.O.'s have very long spear shaped leaves, that flow out over a pot, making a lush potted plant for a patio or a porch.
They also grow great around a pond as they will grow in most soils-they are very hardy.
This is fun for children to grow their own plant-they are fascinated by all the babies growing inside the skin of the mother plant.
You will receive one small rooted bulb, they grow fast and will take up your whole pot.
Pictures are of a mother plant-so you can see how it grows.
