Our Silver Squill come in a 12cm Nursery Pot.

Shiny bulbous center, spotted rosettas of foliage, fainty foliage - all in one. Yes, this is the Silver Squill. A dainty looking, yet hardy, desktop plant that does great indoors as well as outdoors.

Growing naturally in the Eastern Cape, the socialis refers to its nature of growing in colonies. Silver Squill will produce new 'bulbuous pups' around the established plant, until the entire pot has been filled up with a colony of plants.

To propagate, gently break away an individual bulb, place in its own pot with 1/3 or 1/2 of the bulb exposed. Water thoroughly and continue normal care. 


Follow these instructions to keep your Silver Squill healthy and happy.

Water: Once a week in summer and reduce in winter
Light: Very bright light and some hours of full sun
Humidity: No humidity adjustments required
Fertilize: Balanced Liquid Fertilizer once a month, during growing season
