Ledebouria Scilla | Botany & Care

The leaf pattern of this decorative plant is very special.

BOTANY | Ledebouria originally grows in South Africa, in dry areas without much protection from the sun.

PLANT CARE | The Ledebouria Scilla does not require much care. Let the soil dry out completely and then give it a good splash of water. During the growing season, the plant needs more water than in winter when houseplants, like garden plants, go into dormancy. Give organic plant food monthly in the summer months.


South Africa - Dry areas - Sun

When you know where the plant originally comes from, you can imitate that environment at home or at work as closely as possible. Then your plant will feel completely at home in no time.


Be careful with over watering. With succulents in particular, an occasional splash of water is sufficient. When water remains at the bottom of the pot, root rot occurs and the plant usually does not survive this.

Flower pot

The kraft paper pot is waterproof for several weeks to months, depending on the water needs of the plant. The pot is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free. As soon as moisture spots appear in the soil, the pot is no longer watertight and it is best to repot the plant. After repotting, the pot can be handed in with the waste paper to be recycled.
