Answer: It may be that when you cut the flowers, you took too much of the stem and leaves along with the flower. When cutting flowers to bring inside, be sure that at least half to two-thirds of the stem and foliage remains to supply food to the bulb. This helps insure abundant blooms next year. Before bringing cut lilies indoors, remove the pollen structures or anthers. Lilies produce large quantities of pollen which can stain clothing and other materials.
