I just read something someone said that if you pull a leaf off in a downward motion,then dipped in moist sand, it would make bulblets. Anyone ever hear of this? There was a link for it but all it did was show a picture.

Hi Dave,

There are a few comments on the subject here: The thread "Did everyone but me know about this?" in Lilies forum

Hope that helps.

That seems to be a pretty popular blog entry, as several lily people on the forum have discovered and wondered about it.
A few discussions already here:
The thread "Did everyone but me know about this?" in Lilies forum

The thread "Size of bulb vs. number of stems" in Lilies forum
starting with post #17

The thread "Propagating Lilies from Leaves" in Lilies forum

Anything to add, anyone? Updates?
