There are a small number of bulbs with ridiculous curly leaves, and this is one of the most extreme, native to western Cape Province.
It has recently become available on the curio market - they do look remarkable growing in pots - and no doubt thousands have died as a result
on windowsills up and down the country.
Mine went straight into a large pot and although it sat still until the flower spike died off, it regrew from the bulb with several offsets
and immediately produced another flower spike.
