Care tips for Lilies from the grower
A lovely bunch of lilies can be enjoyed for quite a long time. Below are a number of hints for optimum care:
- Lilies do not have to be placed in an area with light
- Avoid exposing them to drafts and bright sunlight
- Flower food prevents the growth of bacteria in the water, contributes to prettier blossoms and combats early yellowing of the leaves
- Lilies are sensitive to overly-concentrated flower food. Make sure that you do not exceed the ratio indicated on the packaging
- Lilies are highly sensitive to ethylene, so do not place the vase close to a fruit bowl
- Remove pollen stains with a dry brush; a wet cloth will only worsen the stain. You could also hang the affected clothing in the sun and wind for a few hours. Another effective method is to remove lily pollen with a piece of adhesive tape
- If you would like to remove the pollen from the blossoms, make sure that you leave the filaments and the pistil untouched. The blossom will look less damaged
- If you remove the pistil, the blossom’s fragrance will diminish
