Hi all, I'm a newbee and I have planted 6 Calalily bulbs. They are all blooming. What do I do when the flower dies? Do I leave it on there or cut it back? Any other info will be appreciated as I have always loved this plant but have never had one of my own to raise. Thanks

How long does it take to get blooms from seed?

I have the plain white one, but since I've had such great luck with them I think I'll plant more of different colors. What do you do in winter with them?

It takes two to three years for seeds to turn into flowers, but if you have more than one color they may surprise you when they do! I now have a lovely lavender one that HAD to have come from seed---not only is it where I never planted any bulbs, it's a different color from any of the ones that I did plant!

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
