The Easter lily is now used more to decorate churches for Easter services. But, many people do not realize how the Easter lily brings the feeling of rebirth into your indoor space. The Easter lily fills a room with fragrant aroma.
When choosing an Easter lily, there are many factors to consider. Look for a plant that has dark green leaves, not yellowing. Dark green is a sign of a healthy plant. Look for a plant with various stages of blooms. You want a plant with one bloom fully open, and other buds that look like they are about to burst. Look for plants with an abundance of blooms, but not enough to make the plant fall over.
There are many tricks to make your Easter lily last longer. The Easter lily likes moist soil, but not wet soil. Check the soil often and limit the amount of water you give the plant. Place the plant in a container that drains well. This may be a larger planter or just place the uncovered pot in a saucer. Place the plant in bright indirect sunlight. The Easter lily likes cooler temperatures.
Enjoy your plant until all blooms have wilted. You can also plant your Easter lily outdoors. The plant may bloom a second time in the Fall, but usually won’t bloom until the following June or July.
