Bowiea volubilis– aka Climbing Sea Onion- Bowiea is a genus of bulbous, perennial, succulent plants which thrive in dry and desert regions of eastern and southern Africa. It is native to a region stretching from Kenya to Cape Province. The genus contains a single species, Bowiea volubilis. Bowiea volubilis has an unusual succulent adaptation – climbing inflorescences that harvest photosynthetic light in the absence of aerial leaves. This has made it a collectable curiosity amongst bulb enthusiasts worldwide. However, in southern Africa this species faces severe threat due to the medicinal market. Herbalists constantly rate this species as one of the top six medicinal species to have become scarce as a result of over-utilization. It has pale spherical bulbs send up many-branched stems of pale ochre which emerge in winter, with greenish-white flowers. Is toxic if ingested

This is a RARE plant. Plant available are rooted divisions, shown in 5″ pot and will ship bareroot and stems may trimmed for shipping (will try to save). Pictures of mother plant also shown. All my plants are healthy and pest free. I ship USPS  priority mail 2-5 business days.

Not responsible for frozen plants or delays from postal service, that’s out of my hands. If you require a heat pack, I have some for sale, check under my other listings. I’m not making any money on these, I have them there for YOUR convenience. They are priced at $6 that’s to cover my cost.

  2. Received after 3 days I ordered. They arrived in a box. All wrapped loosely by used newspapers. You can see the roots with some soil still attached. I planted them in pots the next day. I put them in my sun room. Hope they will grow healthy and see the flowers soon.
