Easter Lily plant care advice and essential tips
If you want your Easter Lily to do well year after year and produce beautiful blooms, it’s important that you take proper care of it. They are not all that temperamental provided you cater to their basic needs. Here’s what you need to know about growing and caring for these plants.
Your Easter Lily will do best in an area with full sun to partial shade. Ideally, the plant should be shielded from the midday sun since it can scorch the leaves and petals. While the plant likes the warmth, the roots enjoy cooler temperatures. So, to keep them cool, simply add mulch.
When planting your Easter Lily, make sure that you opt for well-drained soil rich in organic matter. The soil should be neutral or slightly acidic. If the soil is slightly alkaline, this is not necessarily a problem. Just keep a close eye on the pH of the soil and make the necessary adjustments with the appropriate fertilizers.
You should keep the soil around your Easter Lily evenly moist. Take care not to over water. You should wait for the top soil to dry out before watering again. If not, it can cause the roots to rot and your plant will die.
Humidity and temperature
Your Easter Lily will prefer mild temperatures. They also do best in moderately humid climates. High temperatures and high humidity are not ideal for these plants.
If your soil is not particular rich in nutrients, you might like to fertilize in spring and summer. Use a slow-release fertilizer for best results. A balanced fertilizer is best for encouraging growth and the production of beautiful blooms.
As you can tell, there’s not much to caring for your Easter Lily plant. As long as you pay attention and keep an eye on your plant, you can be sure that it will let you know if there is anything you are doing ‘wrong’.
