My friend's plant in the Philippines, she said it is a bulb, with succulent-like leaves. Leaves are mottled. Somehow reminds me of Ledebouria, not certain which cultivar.

#1 sure looks like Ledebouria, possibly Silver Squill (Ledebouria socialis)

Hi Lin, I have a Ledobouria socialis but the blooms and its color looks different from what my friend has. The mottled specks of her plant looks smaller too, unless humidity aspects affects the plants growth. It is intensely humid there right now too.

Tarev,

These are my Ledebouria socialis, all grown from the same bulb. There seems to be a lot of variability within the species.

HI Daisy, yes, that is why I am wondering too if humidity affects the growth of its mottled specks. Over there, humidity is always at 80% to 100% right now, and temps just too humid hot. The blooms on her plant is different though. My Ledebouria socialis has purplish blooms, her plant has white ones.

This is the bloomstalk on my Ledebouria socialis: purplish inside
