Bowiea volubilis native from Kenya to South Africa. It produces a cluster of surface growing fleshy, yellowish green bulbs that grow from a couple of inches across to the size of a softball with only the basal 10 percent of the bulb actually in the soil. Likes a crowded pot, caudices can grow to 4′ in diameter. They produce offsets or smaller bulbs as the plant matures, which can be divided away from the parent to produce new plants. Slender stems sprout from the bulbs and branch out into feathery flower stalks. Numerous tiny 6 pointed starry white to green blooms appear along the stems in winter and spring. These “vines” can grow quite large (in some plants, upwards of 15 feet in length).

Care as follows:

  • Full sun to partial shade
  • Water when the soil is almost dry
  • Feed occasionally throughout the summer
  • DOES  NOT LIKE BEING COLD AND WET

NOT PET FRIENDLY
