The Pregnant Onion, also known as False Sea Onion, Sea-onion, or German Onion, is a visually stunning succulent that is highly coveted by collectors for its unique and striking appearance. With a height that can reach up to 90cm, this succulent boasts a tall stem that is crowned with small, fragrant white flowers, each with green inner stripes.

Originally from South Africa, the Pregnant Onion prefers dry climates and thrives in full sun to part shade. Its bulb, which resembles an onion growing above ground, sprouts long, thin, fleshy leaves that fan out at the top. The plant’s name comes from the tiny “pups” that grow around the base of its bulb, giving the appearance of an expectant mother.

The Pregnant Onion is a low-maintenance plant that is perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings. It requires minimal watering and can survive in a range of temperatures. This unique succulent is sure to add a touch of natural beauty to any space it inhabits, and will make an excellent addition to any plant collection.
