spider lily ????

jannaz_gwJuly 30, 2012

Hi, all. I posted this on the lily forum, but I'll ask over here as well, since that forum seems less active than here, and I'll bet someone here can help.

I am a total rookie/ignoramus when it comes to flowers of any sort.

Several years ago I brought home a beautiful white potted lilie which I believe is a spider lilie or Peruvian daffodil. I was told it would bloom once, maybe twice, and never bloom again. So when the first bloom withered, I transplanted it outside and basicly ignored it. Its home is close to the garden hose faucet, where it gets water on an irregular basis. After about 3 years of neglect, it bloomed again. Then about three years after that, which is now, it bloomed again--5 blossoms.

Now, those blossoms appear to be producing babies! Bulbs, I guess, rather than seed pods. My question is, what should I do with the babies to possbly get new plants?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Lilies grow from bulbs you can divide the bulbs split off the ones the new babies are growing from.

I also posted recently about a method to start new lilies from the leaves, search for that post here.
If you want a definite id post a picture over on the name that plant forum they are awesome.
