I have purchased 2 x 3 flame lilies from your website. Do I plant all three in one pot or one per pot? How deep should I plant the tubular?
We advise planting the Rhizomes 3-4″ deep and 6-8″ apart. So it will depend on the size of your pot. If you wish to plant all 3 bulbs in one pot, I would suggest using an 18″ pot. If you look on our website, we advise planting the rhizomes on a 45 degree angle. A diagram can be found to show which way up to plant on the angle. I do hope that helps.
How can I tell which way to plant a Gloriosa bulb? I can’t tell which is the growth tip and tail end?
Great question and this is one that baffles a few people. Below I have attached a diagram to show which way to plant a Gloriosa Rhizome/Bulb. It’s also best to plant the Gloriosa Rhizomes on a 45 degree angle as well.
