It is very easy to grow either from seeds or bulbs. Flowers are lovely and so fragrant! So hardy and easy to grow!
Here is how to grow them from seeds:
1. In a seed tray fill with soil (mix with well drained medium), place paper like seeds on top of the soil. 種子播於苗盆表土,用土不拘但要排水良好.
2. Keep soil moist but not soggy, place the seed tray in partial shade area for 2 months. Some varieties of lilies have fast germination period but Lilium regale is slower so be patient. 苗盆土壤保濕但不可過濕,置於半日照通風處,約2個月發芽. 有很多其它品種的百合發芽速度很快但岷江百合卻需要較長時間等待,要有耐心.
3. When seedling grow 4-6 leaves then loosen the seed tray soil, separate plants from the original seed tray and change them to a bigger tray and space them 3″ apart or plant them in 3″ pots individually. You will see the seedlings start to grow tiny bulb. 小苗4-6片葉子時可以從原苗盆將土弄鬆後間距加大,可換較大苗盆或用3吋小盆一棵棵分開種.
Place them in partial shade location for one month and then change to full sun location.
4.Fertilize seedlings with compost or diluded liquid fertilizer. 用堆肥的土施肥或施稀釋後的液肥薄肥.
