Ensure the plant receives a good soak, allowing water to reach the roots, but avoid waterlogging the soil. An approximate guideline could be to water once a week, but adjust the frequency according to temperature and humidity. You might use about 1 gallon of water for each watering session, depending on the size of the plant and pot. Monitor the plant's response to watering and adjust as needed to ensure healthy growth.

    Prune the Roselily Natalia primarily to remove spent flowers and any yellowing or dead leaves to encourage healthy growth and appearance. This should be done after the blooming period, usually in late summer or early fall. Pruning helps redirect the plant's energy to the healthy parts and prepares it for the next blooming season. You may also cut back the stems to within a few inches of the soil after the plant has finished flowering.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Lilium Roselily Natalia, commonly referred to as a double-flowered lily, begins its life cycle as a bulb, which undergoes a period of dormancy typically during the colder months. Upon the onset of favorable conditions in spring, the bulb sends up shoots that develop into sturdy stems and leaves. As the plant matures, buds form and eventually bloom into the characteristic large, double flowers that are often fragrant during the summer. After flowering, the plant directs energy back to the bulb as the seeds develop, if pollination has occurred. The foliage yellows and withers away in the fall as the plant re-enters dormancy, which allows the bulb to conserve energy for the next growing season. The cycle repeats yearly, with the bulb enlarging and potentially producing offsets that can be separated to propagate new plants.

    • The most popular method of propagation for the Lilium Roselily Natalia, commonly known as Roselily, is through scaling. This technique involves carefully removing scales from the main bulb during the plant's dormancy period, which is typically in the late fall after the foliage has died back. The scales are then treated with a fungicide to prevent rot and placed in a bag with moist vermiculite or peat moss. This bag is stored in a warm place, around 70 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 21 degrees Celsius), until bulblets form at the base of the scales, which usually takes a few months. These new bulblets can then be planted in well-draining soil to grow into new Roselily plants. Scaling allows for the multiplication of lily plants while maintaining the genetic characteristics of the parent bulb.
