This is a FUN plant to grow.
Do you like novelties and oddities? This is one!
This is for ONE baby Pregnant onion that is sprouted.
It is about the size of 1/4" across.
Plant now and and when it grows bigger, it will have babies.
It is Nicknamed-Pregnant Onion-for obvious reasons-called Ornithogalum longibracteatum or sometimes Ornithogalum caudatum.
It grows from a bulb you plant with soil covering the roots, so that bulb is somewhat above the 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 after a while you will have a larger bulb growing.
Pregnant Onions have very long spear shaped leaves, that flow out over a pot, making a lush potted plant for a room, patio or a porch.
They can get flowers and produce seeds.
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 receive one bulb.
They usually grow fast and should finally take up your whole pot.
