    as I know it's a sorry looking specimen!!
    I found it in a pot months ago and had no idea of what it could be , so thought it best to leave it be and see what emerges....and this is it!! Haven't the foggiest though of what it is. So seeking out your help, once again .Thanks:biggrin:IMG_20200810_102741.jpgIMG_20200810_102752.jpg

    Reminds me of a poor specimen of Galtonia candicans (now Ornithogalum candicans).

      A 'poor specimen ' is a polite description for it!!:yikes::roflol:

      Definitely looks like the one, God knows where it came from. What should I do now to nurture it...or is it terminal looking.

      Like any bulb it needs feeding. Better planted out than in a pot too if it is in a pot. Usually sets lots of seed(not sure if it needs another one to do that though). If it does they are dead easy to grow and take about 2 to 3 years to reach flowering size.
