Here are some of the plant characteristics to look for when identifying succulents:
- Leaf – shape, size and thickness.
- Color – of leaves, flowers or stems.
- Markings or bumps on the leaves.
- Flower – shape, color, number of blooms and petals.
- Stem – color, texture, length.
- Ciliate hairs.
- Epicuticular wax.
- Spikes, spines or smooth.
Also to know is, how do you take care of a leopard lily succulent?
Keep the soil slightly moist at all times about every 7-10 days. It can tolerate a slight amount of drying but no more than the top inch. Reduce watering in the winter or you may drown the plant. Thrives best in 65°F – 75°F and less than 60° should be avoided.
Beside above, how do you take care of a squill?
Try growing silver squill outdoors during spring and summer when ambient temperatures are at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15 C.). In cold regions, move the plant back indoors. Once established, water needs are minimal. Allow the top inch (2.5 cm.) to dry out before irrigating in spring and summer.
How do I find out what type of plant I have?
Take a look at the shape of the leaf when identifying flowers by their leaves. The leaf shape can be round, oval or oblong, lance shaped or elliptic. The pattern of veins in the leaf can also help you figure out the type of plant you are dealing with.
A great option for identification is an app put together by my friend Jacki at Drought Smart Plants called Succulent ID. You can look at different genera of succulents or search through photos based on characteristics of your succulent.
It has fleshy, stalkless, broadly lance-shaped, pointed leaves 5-10cm (2-4 inch) long. Leaf upper surfaces are silvery blotched and banded with olive green and the undersides are deep violet. Dense clusters of tiny, green flowers edged with white are produced in spring on flower stalks 8-15cm (3-6 inch) long.
The plant’s leaves have turned yellow and are drooping.
A probably cause it over watering. The Leopard Lily’s soil should never get soggy. It should be moist and allowed to dry slightly before its next watering. To revive it, try removing it from its pot and try to remove excess water with paper towels.
Ledebouria Socialis Scilla leopard lily is a small evergreen perennial bulbs. Grows in thick clusters that survive drought as effectively as any succulent. This species is a geophytic species of bulbous perennial plant native to the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.
Ledebouria socialis growing herbaceous geophyte succulent of the genus Ledebouria also known as Silver Squill, Ledebouria socialis perennial evergreen used as ornamental drought tolerant plant, can grow in mediterranean, subtropics climate or as houseplant.
The toxicity of this plant might be more of by association with others and it is not specifically listed in most valid poisonous plant references (including the FDA database), studies on Ledebouria socialis have yielded hyacinthacines and to be safe we list this plant as possibly poisonous.
The Forever Rich plant is another indoor plant that is known for bringing luck to the residents of a house. It is a succulent variety that originated in Africa and is distinctive because of its spotted leaves that have thin white spikes.
