I sowed Albuca shawii and A. aurea two days ago and many have  
germinated. Some radicles are 5 mm long already. They might have  
started sprouting as soon as they got moist, but I didn't look at them  
till today.

Are these desert plants that grow as soon as they sense moisture,  
flower and seed fast, and then die?
