Once your Easter lily is finished blooming, cut off the flower stalk, place the plant in the brightest window indoors until the weather is warm enough to plant outdoors. Keep the plant well watered and begin fertilizing with a complete fertilizer monthly. By June, plant it outdoors in the flower bed as you would a normal lily and it should be fine. The lily may even flower again this summer. More likely it will dieback and come out next summer when all the other lilies grow and bloom.
