    Default Scilla peruviana

    I had one of these a few years ago, but it died on me. I just found this one at a local produce store! Giving it another shot. I'll try to post another picture when it's fully in bloom.

    I killed the first one I had pretty quickly after I bought it so I'm starting from scatch. Hopefully it'll prove decently easy!
