Aztec Lily (sprekelia formosissima)
Well I've been at it again. This time it's 3 Aztec Lilies, (sprekelia formosissima I presume) from Ebay.
I thought these might have been planted already and were going to be ripped out of the ground and have their leaves cut but I was wrong! These were pre-packaged bulbs from cultivated stock from Holland, packaged in the Netherlands (so the label said). They were nice firm bulbs all with offsets and they had already started to sprout in the package so I saved them just in the nick of time! Nothing amiss and no signs of any rot.
The instructions said to plant them 8" deep but since that's not really possible with a pot I just covered them up to their necks. I can plant them a few inches deeper if need be though. Would any of you have any tips or advice for growing these in pots? I do have deeper pots but probably only about 3 " deeper. They are in a 7" deep pot currently but I do have some 10" deep pots, but they're really heavy...Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks....
