People also ask, is a pregnant onion a succulent?
There are several bulbs that I tend to lump into the succulent category since they grow so well in the same situations that cacti and succulents do, and the Pregnant Onion, Albuca bracteata (aka Ornithogalum longibracteatum) is one of the easiest of these I have grown.
In this regard, what plant looks like an onion?
Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are attractive plants with hollow, grasslike leaves that look much like green onions.

To see whether or not one of your plants is poisonous (toxic), look it up on this list and check to see what number follows its name. Then read the information after that number in the Toxicity Index in the sidebar.
Onion plants need between 12 to 16 hours of light, varying by whether they are long-day or short-day onions. Supplement sunlight with artificial light if needed. While you can start with onion seeds or sets, you can easily turn leftover onion bulbs or sprouted onions from your kitchen into an indoor garden.
According to the folk remedy, if you come down with a cold or the flu, all you have to do is slice a red or white onion into rounds, place them on the bottoms of your feet, and put on a pair of socks. Leave the socks on overnight as you sleep. In the morning, you’ll wake up cured of your illness.
Albuca bracteata (syn. Ornithogalum longebracteatum), is known by the common names pregnant onion, false sea onion, and sea-onion. It is a species of bulbous flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae. Its flowering stems can reach a height of 90 cm and can carry up to 100 greenish white flowers.
The more common means of propagation is to divide and repot smaller bulbs produced by the maturing plant in late summer and fall. Like most bulbs, climbing onion bulbs branch at their base and slowly produce “new daughter bulbs.” Another means is to cut the thick outer peel of the bulb scale from the mother bulb.
