    The fan of Boophone disticha leaves may curve in at the tips, appearing spidery. There may be from eight to twenty leaves grown from a bulb in each season.

    The plant in picture has wavy margins on its channelled leaves. These margins may also be without undulations and hyaline, which means having a glassy, transparent appearance. The leaf-tips are acutely pointed with some twisting visible in the upper, narrower parts of the lance-shaped blades (Duncan, et al, 2016; Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2015; Pooley, 1998).
