This “fragile grower” with exotic colored flowers, narrow, waxy-edged petals is a climber needing a trellis or some type of wire or support for the tendrils to cling to.
Growing And Care Of Gloriosa Lily In Pots
In growing the lily Gloriosa, start off right with what would be considered a plump #1 tuber (about 4″ inches long or more)
February to May
Plant the large tuber about 4″ inches deep, horizontally in a rich well draining soil.
Before planting make sure the soil is moist. When planting, its good to get the trellis or future support in place.
This will mean the plants roots and tender growth will not be disturbed later on.
Keep soil evenly moist, temperatures above 65° degrees Fahrenheit but at a constant temp when starting the tubers.289
