The only place I've seen Albuca shawii growing wild is on a rocky outcrop on 
the slopes below the Ampitheatre in the Royal Natal National Park, in very 
thin soil. Rapid germination when moisture was adequate would make much 
sense in such a site. It is also a very fast grower, easily producing an 
inflorescence in its first growing season. For some reason I don't grow it 
now, alas.
