Does anyone know the best way to force Asiatic lilies open as a cut flower? We have extremely closed lilies that need to be opened by Saturday. I have been replacing the water regularly with luke warm water and am about to place them under my grow lamps.
What you're doing sounds about right to me. Are they in a warm location? That will help also. I was going to suggest gently pulling on them as they open, but I remember asiatic lilies bruise very easily so maybe that's not such a good idea. That's about all I know. Good luck!
