Albuca bracteata, commonly known as 'Little Fatty,' is a charming small succulent that wins hearts with its plump green bulbs and fountain of slender foliage. From Makuru (winter) to the brink of Djilba (early spring), it sends up long spikes crowned with dainty white and green flowers, bringing a whimsical touch to gardens and homes. 'Little Fatty' fits perfectly in minimalist spaces or as part of a succulent collection, offering an engaging contrast in form and texture.
This easy-care plant prefers a sunny spot and well-draining soil, making it ideal for both in-ground and potted environments. To thrive, it requires moderate watering, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, and benefits from a light application of a balanced liquid fertiliser during the growing season. In sandy soils, a dose of soil conditioner will ensure it has all it needs to flourish without being overly fatty.
