Like all Asian lilies, this variety is hardy. They look great as cut flowers, and it is easy to grow. However, it is better to use good-quality potting mixes when you grow them in pots. Add a slow-release fertilizer when planting to get abundant flowering, or feed the plant with a liquid fertilizer every two weeks during flowering. Lilies love nutrients and moderate moisture during growth. So remember that pots have limited resources. In a container with a diameter of 15 cm and a height of 25 cm, you can plant 1-3 bulbs of the same lily variety and different ones. When growing, distribute the bulbs, so they do not touch each other and the walls of the container.
In the garden, plant your bulbs, fertilize in time and enjoy the blooms. The soil needs to be well-drained, light, and sandy, with a slightly alkaline or neutral reaction. Location: full sun or spotty shade. Aspect: South side, West side. Plants are generally placed at a depth about twice the bulb's height. This is 15-20 cm for large bulbs and 10-15 cm for smaller bulbs. The approximate distance between lilies when planting should be within 30 cm

How to Plant
Guide and tips for plantinglilium(lily) bulbs
Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil.
Dig a hole that is 2-3 times deeper than the height of the bulb.
Mix some compost or other organic matter into the soil at the bottom of the hole.
Place the bulb in the hole with the pointed end facing up.
Fill the hole with soil and gently firm the soil around the bulb.
Water the soil until it is evenly moist.
Cover the area with a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Water the bulb regularly, making sure not to let the soil dry out completely.
As the plant grows, provide support to the stem to prevent it from bending or breaking.
After the flowers have faded, cut the stem off at the base and continue to care for the plant by watering it regularly and providing it with full sun or partial shade.
