The Q&A Archives: Lily Of The Nile

Question: I have thinned and transplanted some Lily Of The Nile, should I leave the long leaves on the new transplants or cut them off?

Answer: Pat,

You can leave those long leaves on the plants. They will allow the plant to still catch some sunlight and turn it into carbohydrates to help build the plants strength faster following the transplanting. Just keep the soil moist without keeping it soggy wet.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
