Hey everyone!

A little plant has just popped up beneath my front yard tap and I don't know what it is.
It is a green leaf plant with black spots all over it, however I do not know if it is diseased or if that is how it naturally looks.

Sorry the picture is so blurry.

Any ideas?

Hi Jakometes,

It looks like Drimiopsis maculata.

Ahhh! Thank you!

Yes, this definitely looks like the exact plant. My partner dug it up out of the garden to re-pot it in to a more suitable place (as underneath the tap there is no light and it is always damp...) He seems to be doing MUCH BETTER now in his new home. It had a white bulb that looked like an egg.

Thank you for your help! Problem solved!
