    Wow I have one of these, but it's not doing so great. How do you get yours to look so full and healthy? I didn't have a tag on mine when I got it but I've been askin around. If I get an answer before anyone else here I'll let you know.

    Oh Welcome to OT.

    Found this link, the plant is called Ledbouria Socialis (Violacea). Not sure if I put the capitals and brackets in the right places but at least we now have a name.

    I think I gave you the wrong variation of the Ledebouria (and I just realised that I left out an 'e') Socialis. The name isn't Violacea, it's silver squill. Sorry about that.

    I agree with the name given by Dazed. However be aware that this plant is not an Orchid, but rather a succulent.

    Drimiopsis is the genus name I have this plant under. The species name is not known to me, but socialis could well be the name.
