DigginlifeOctober 18, 2013

I put a bunch of lily scales and i guess small bulblets in a ziplock bag. i noticed one has sprouted a leaf. Im guessing I pot it up now? how big of a pot should i use ? .. I didnt want to have my grow lights going this early.can i get away with window light for a while ? any other suggestions on where to go from here Thanks ...kristen

At least the size of a nickel! 8)

I'd use a pot big enough it doesn't need watering twice a day. Perhaps quart sized or so. That should make it a little less sensitive to the watering schedule. I assume you will put it outside in the spring?

I'd put the ziplock bag in the fridge to slow the other bulbs down. You don't want them getting moldy either. Putting them in pot now would (IMO) help prevent mold. I've overwintered (dormant) Lilies in pots in the garage. Problem is they take off very early in the year since the garage isn't cold enough.
