lily stinks

clairdo2(3)April 3, 2008

I got an Easter lily for Easter and it stinks real bad. Did anyone ever come across this before?

Hi! You need to clarify. Do you mean the flower or the plant stinks? If not the flowers, perhaps the bulb is rotting. If the potted lily has been sitting in a saucer of water, it is likely starting to decay.

Some lilies have a very strong odor that is best smelled from a distance. If you stick your nose right in them it's not a good smell.
