The ornithogalum caudatum grows similar to a normal spring onion and grows through the soil. However, unlike the onion that we use in the kitchen, this type blooms and has white little flowers along the stem. The great thing about the ornithogalum caudatum is that it is just as easy to plant as normal onions. You can plant it in your garden, but it grows equally well in pots kept indoors. The preferred temperatures are low and the flowers bloom almost all year round. Over time, the bulbs (roots) form new onions which you can cut away, use in a different location or leave as they are. The ornithogalum caudatum is native in South Africa and has been used just like we would use fresh Aloe Vera, meaning that it can be squeezed and rubbed on sun burns or other types of burns to speed up the healing process. It is also known to be effective after being bitten by an insect and for some types of rash. In older times, it was also used as a vegetable both raw and cooked.
