Yes. This holds it's water in a bulb formation. It will rot if kept too moist or not allowed to dry. It is a winter grower and needs to keep dry in the summer. I was told not to even water during the summer (but I do). I keep mine in the sun and lots of Perlite in the soil.
Plant Update! It's going to bloom! Super excited to see what these look like! 7.22.19 #taylorsplants #containergarden #albucaspiralisfrizzlesizzle
