Dear Alberto:

Some of the online pics of  Chlorogalum do look quite like my plant, especially the broader leafed type, but no. The bulb does not have a "hairy" coat when dry out-of-pot and the leaves are not prostrate, but erect and spreading. Having seen the blooms of Chlorogalum, however, I rather wish it were one.
