Easter lilies are a holiday favorite. Grow them as gifts for your family and friends!
What You'll Need:
Easter lily bulbs
6-inch wide flower pots
Pour about four inches of soil into each of your flower pots. Put an Easter lily bulb onto the soil, and fill in around it with more potting soil until the bulb is barely covered. Moisten the soil, then put the pot aside in a cool, dark place.
After about two weeks the stalk will sprout from the bulb. Fill in with more soil. Keep adding soil as the stalk grows until you have filled the pot to within 1/2 inch of the top.
Two months after you have planted the bulbs, bring them into a well-lit room. Mist the leaves daily with a plant mister or spray bottle. In a cool room, the plant will take about three months to bloom. In a warm room, it may take two months or less.
