I don't understand how Albuca canadensis, syn. Albuca maxima should be named
canadensis?  Did a Canadian discover it?  Does anyone know the history of
this particular albuca?  I purchased this seed from Silverhill in 2006, it
was labeled a. maxima.

In my opinion if one is to pot grow this, start in a large pot to begin
with.  Preferably a heavy pot, with half a dozen bulbs growing in a 6"
square pot, it is easily tipped.
