My sister got me this lily a few days after Easter. It's been about a month in, and its blooms have just all finished. Since then a lot of its lower leaves are yellowing, and my research says this is normal, but I'm not entirely sure what I need to do. A lot of the care instructions I come across are for potted lilies like mine that get planted outside, but I plan to keep mine indoors. I'm also not really invested in getting it to rebloom or anything, I just want the plant itself to be healthy. Should I just remove the yellowing leaves, or is this widespread? What exactly am I supposed to do with my lily, keeping in mind that I intend to keep it an indoor plant?

You can't change the normal cycle of the plant, it seems ready to go dormant.
Plant it and they will come.

Hey, Sally. Is there anything I need to do for it during dormancy? Any recommendations for care?
