Anyone owns this plant? I thought it was neat but read it went dormant - lose its leaves

Had to look it up. Albuca spiralis! I have Albuca namaquensis which is very similar. I don't have a bunch of time so, here's a link...

Here is a link that might be useful: Albuca

I don't know if it's me or my computer, but I see no photo. Is a pic still there?

'Frizzle Sizzle' is a variety of Albuca spiralis. Curly leaves. Here's a bit from a nursery's point of view:

I guess MIssingtheobvious DID NOT miss the not so obvious.

LOL! I didn't post a pic because my pics are sideways when posted.

I went ahead and bought the plant as a HoHO present to me :)

Glad to hear you got a HoHo present, Camellia! I have gotten so used to seeing pix in each post, that I forgot sometimes there is NOT. Ha ha ha! Trick on me! Also didn't think to look up 'Sizzle Frizzle', like Ryan did, to find out it was an Albuca. Those are NEAT plants! Glad Missingtheobvious... didn't...either.

(Tip: sideways pix are better than none...in my book. I can always turn them.) I bought a couple swirly Juncus recently, that remind me of your plant.

Ohhhhh how I want one these. I can only find them on ebay though which is a bummer because I never use ebay. One day I'll get my hands on one of these.
