Im not an SA expert, but  i think it might be an Eriospermum rather than Ornithogalum.

Maybe E. dielsianum.
Anyway it lacks one petal...

Hi Oron I have bought like  Daubenya stylosa, before the flower carried two leaves parallels, long 12 cm and wide 7 milimeter,
from the type of flower, and the period of closing task to Ornithogalum
I do not know what to say,

I wondered could it possibly be an Albuca?
