The plant has curled foliage and flowers between June and August, for about 6 weeks. "The flower does not only look stunning, it also seems to have a good Vanilla scent", says de Greef
Good addition to succulent range
Fleurizon firstly introduced it in Europe and later, they decided to enter the US with this variety. And so far, the response is positive. "Our customers are pleased with the reactions of their customers” And in the 5 years after the introduction, the Albuca Spiralis expanded very well in the worldwide market. "The market is still growing in USA, Europe and now also in Japan. With the green plants now in a boom, we are already seeing an increase in bookings for 2021. The growth of the bulbs for delivery in 2021 is very promising and we will have plenty available, even more than in 2020."
