In the post about small houseplants, below, there is a picture of Ledbouria pauciflora which looks exactly like my plant, received as Ledbouria socialis. Could these names be synonymous?
Could these names be synonymous?
Depending on which pair of glasses I had on that day my ID skills could also be backwards.
Both are very closely related yet either one of them vary to much to be synonymous.
To my understanding the ID's of these two are as follow:
L. Socialis (Scilla violacea) has a clearer Zebra striped pattern inner foliage tops and a slightly less colorful then L.pauciflora on back side of flowers.
L.pauciflora (Scilla pauciflora) has a more distinct Leopard pattern on foliage tops with inside of flower coloring being slightly brighter than Socialis.
Both are very small in flowering and nice bulbs glad that you can enjoy them as much as you do. Although I think it might get more confusing when we both start posting them Albucas.
I now know what happens when I hit the back arrow on my browser.
Thank you, mrlike2u, I did think my flowers were a little paler...the bulbs of my plant also seem to stay small, unlike those in some pics I've seen on the forums.
Hey that's cool. I had no idea my recently-acquired bulbs would make little flowers. Are they open in the pic? Looks really happy!
Purple: not 100% but most of the tiny flowers do appear to be open with 7x step close up filters at 10 inch focal distance they look like this :
Oooh that's so cute! Purple! Kind of looks like Muscari. In case neither side of my bifocals will focus on these flowers WHEN my bulbs make them, I don't care if I need a magnifying glass. I'm ready with that too.
