Growing Medium
a well drained, growing media is essential for proper growth of lilies. the medium should not contain superphosphate or perlite. PH should be maintained at 6.5.

Planting
Growers should be prepared to plant bulbs as soon as they arrive.Plant the bulbs at the bottom of the pot (1/2" of soil below them). Once potted the pots should be watered thoroughly. The soild should never be allowed to dry out, while at the same time the soil must not be too wet. When the shoots are 2-3" tall the stem roots are usually well developed and more water is required.

Temperatures
The pots are best to be put in 48 degrees cooler for 10 days prior to greenhouse. This is especially helpful in warmer temperatures. Best quality is seen with plants finished at cooler temperatures (58-60F). Orientals should be grown at 55-60F nights and 70-75F days.
