Hi All

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.

may Flowers


I need to know what has to be done next in growing the plant or propagating the plant.

Please help!!

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

[Image Can Not Be Found] The simplest method is division of bulbs, which works particularly well with Asiatic hybrids. Lift the bulbs and look at the base of the original bulb. With any luck, there'll be some small new bulbs forming along the edge.
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.
