Leopard Lily | Ledebouria socialis 'Silver Squill'
Silver Squill, or Leopard Lily, is a fun houseplant with care needs which are much like a succulent. This plant grows from purple-maroon bulbs which sit atop the soil. These bulbs serve as water reserves for the plant, equipping it against drought. This plants scientific name is Ledebouria socialis and it is native to the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Silver Squill plants prefer bright light, but can be adapted to moderate exposures. Avoid extremes like low light or harsh direct light while your plant is acclimating to its new environment.
Water and Soil
The Leopard Lily’s water needs will be very similar to those of a succulent. Only water when the soil is dry. When in doubt, err on the side of underwatering. Overwatering will cause this plants bulbs to soften and rot, producing a rank smell.
Temperature and Humidity
The Leopard Lily does well at average indoor temperatures. This plant does not require high humidity, and in fact will do best in the lower to average humidity found in most homes.
