Common name: Lily Pumilum
Species: Lilium pumilum
Hardiness Zones: 3-8
Germination is hypogeal; seed sprouts
as a bulb at warm temperatures, requiring a period of cold afterwards to send
up its first true leaf. Lily bulbs never go fully dormant, so they must be
treated carefully. Plant seeds about 1/4 inch deep and keep moist. A plastic
sandwich bag placed loosely over each pot will keep moisture in and cut down
maintenance for a few weeks. Place in warm temperature, 70-75°F for 9-12 weeks.
Then place in cold temperatures, in the refrigerator, -4°C to 4°C for 3 months
and back to warm; it will send up its first true leaf in 1-2 weeks. Lily seeds
are not difficult to germinate indoors and to grow under lights. The most
important requirement for the planting mix is drainage while retaining
moisture. Use a combination of sand, soil, vermiculite, perlite, and whatever
organic matter is at hand to produce a light, airy mix which retains moisture
but allows good drainage.
