My tiger lily had produced loads of bulbils this year before any trace of flower buds had formed. How do you turn these little shiny balls into new plants?
Tiger lily bulbils
Wait until later in the season when they become loosely attached. The bulbils may even produce some little rootlets in the meantime. Plant them about 2" deep. Easy peasy. :)
awesome...thanks so much...in the meantime i can collect up some plastics, for potting.
My little ball thingy were falling off....so i was picking them up off the ground. Should I plant them now? thansk for any info, first time with lilies! I'm a third year gardener overall...still learning
i had tossed my bulgils in the empty spots in my flats, and then a few in a pot of soil covered so the cats couldnt hide then from me. the ones in the pot rooted, the ones in the flat did not live.
