I had bought May flower plant last year. During December month all the leaves dried out and i was left with only the root blubs. To try my luck i replanted the root bulbs in march and was so surprised to find all the three bulbs bloom May flowers.
I need to know what has to be done next in growing the plant or propagating the plant.
The most common name of this plant is football lily . I have dozens of them .it can be propagated by just splitting the bulbs. but what i do is just leave the bulb in the pot itself and once they stop blooming , I just plant some other small plants in the same pot like portulaca etc . they usually dont disturb the bulb and when summer begins the bulbs start flowering .
but if u r too interested in propagating it , then
Carefully snap or cut off these new bulbs. Pot them up in a good-quality, loam-based compost and grow them on for a couple of years until they reach flowering size.
You may spot some mini-bulbs or bulb lets forming on the old flower stem below soil level. These can be removed in spring, when they'll often have roots, too.
