List of files and visuals associated with this text.


African lily is grown from thick rhizomes. A medium light exposure and well drained soil are suggested. Keep the soil uniformly moist in summer but slightly dry in winter. Use an equal analysis fertilizer according to label directions. Temperatures of 50 to 55 degrees at night and 65 to 70 degrees during the day are ideal. Day temperatures higher than 70 degrees may cause slow growth. African Lily grows best when potbound. Flowering is not dependent on a particular day length. The plant rests after flowering and may be grown outdoors in sun or light shade during the summer.

Propagation is by root division.
