Years ago I was given Albuca bulbs and later ( to make a long story short) told they were the species shawii. So I started Albuca shawii from seed from the AGCBC exchange, and my original bulbs are slightly different. The seed started Albuca are the same as your Wiki but my bulbs when putting up the flower stock send up long tuffs of green with the flowers unlike the seed started Albuca. The reason i am sending this information is because I was going to send seed / bulbs to the BX of both and wondered if that makes a difference to any one. I have pictures if anyone is interested. jyl tuck sunny in Yale B.C.
