To best identify a plant, you need good FLOWERS, leaf, and habit photos -
the more the better. It's very useful to include a ruler for scale. I think
most people have seen your photo. Based on my experiences in the past, you
need to wait 4-5 days before everyone can respond so patience is good. If no
one responds, that means no one knows the plant being questioned.

Our wiki is a nice and up to date resource. To tell Ornithogalum and Albuca
apart, I would like to refer you to the introduction of the Albuca page (
http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/…). We try to keep up
with the ever-changing taxonomy of this group and have decided to adapt the
Manning et al. 2009 classification until something more stable is available.
