The Q&A Archives: Amazon Lilies

Question: I transplanted an Amazon lily into new pots. I had seven bulbs. Now how do I get them to bloom again. It was blooming when we originally got it. Actually age of plant is unknown.

Answer: Amazon lilies bloom two or three times a year under ideal conditions. They prefer bright, indirect or curtain-filtered sunlight, night temperatures of 65? to 70? and day temperatures of 75? or higher.

Keep the potting medium very moist and fertilize during the growing season; at other times keep the plants in light shade, water them less frequently and do not fertilize. Propagate by separating and repotting the small bulbs that develop beside larger ones.

Hopefully, they will begin to bloom again soon. Good luck with your lilies!
