   This member of the Aloaceae* family was first described by Reynolds in 1964. It is found in the Mbeya district of Tanzania, growing in grit with some water and lots of sun. The tuberous roots will get 4 centimetres in diameter, the grass-like leaf 25 centimetres. The flowers are white, and it can be reproduced by cuttings as well. Found mine at Specks 2003.

*) Aloaceae might be Asphodelaceae now.
