Lily is a bright flowering plant of extraordinary beauty.
Perfection and grace of a peculiar form of flowers is impressive and fascinating. A variety of shades and a pleasant aroma distinguish these beautiful flowers against the background of other colors.
Propagation of lilies in several ways.
Reproduction by children. It is desirable to multiply Lilies In this way in late August or earlySeptember. Carefully separate the children, which were formed on the underground part of the stem, from the mother plant. Plant them in a specially prepared soil. After landing on a permanent place, do not forget to moisten the ground.
Reproduction by bulbs. Approximately 3-4 years of life the plant has a bulb socket. Separate the bulb with a sufficient root system in mid-August. Note that after flowering Lilies Are severely depleted. Wait 1-1.5 months for the bulb to gain strength, become dense, large and elastic. This will contribute to a warm atmosphere, food, as well as the presence of moisture. Try not to trim the roots. Nests of bulbs do not always break up easily, so sometimes they have to be divided by force (hands, without resorting to tools). Plant the bulbs in a well-moistened soil, to a depth of 10-15 cm.
Reproduction by bulbots. Not all varieties reproduce in this way Lilies, But some form in the bosom of the leavesCauline buds (bulbots). On one run, up to 200 pieces of similar bulbs. To increase the bulbousness of the plant, do not forget to remove the buds in time and regularly moisten the soil. At the end of August the bulblets are easily separated from the main stem. Collect them and work in a weak solution of potassium permanganate (about 15-20 minutes). Then plant in the soil to a depth of 3-5 cm. Be sure to leave a distance between the holes 10-15 cm. In the winter, cover with sawdust, leaves or peat.
Reproduction by onion scales. In this way, from one bulb you can collect up to 150 flakes of planting material. The most optimal period for this type of reproduction is spring. Scales choose large, fleshy, healthy and without spots. Remove the scales from the bulb and work in a weak solution of potassium permanganate. Dry them and put them in a clean plastic bag for 1-1.5 months. Keep the bag with scales in a dark place at room temperature. A week before planting, remove the scales in the refrigerator to form bulbs. The resulting hybrid planted in boxes, soil or greenhouses. The soil must be well moistened and protected from strong winds and direct sunlight.
