Scaly Bulbs—Fall Propagation

Lilium Bulbs– Oriental and Asiatic Lilies—Propagation in the Fall (before dormancy)

Step 1. Lilies may be propagated by carefully removing the outer scales. This is similar to removing the outer stems of celery.

Step 2. Place a small amount of rooting hormone with a fungicide** in a zippered storage bag.  Place the scales in the bag, zip the bag shut tightly and shake the bag to dust the scales with the mixture.

Step 3. Holding the scale inside the bag, shake off the excess powder, then remove the scale from the bag (wear rubber gloves, preferably disposable ones).

Step 4. Fill another zippered storage bag with moist vermiculite. Add the treated scales.
