Frequently Asked Questions

Mapira lilies are beautiful plants that can add color and elegance to any garden. To plant them in the ground, follow these simple steps:

• Choose a location with well-draining soil and partial to full sun exposure.
• Dig a hole that is twice as wide and deep as the lily bulb.
• Mix some organic matter, like compost or peat moss, into the soil at the bottom of the hole.
• Place the bulb in the hole with the pointed end facing upwards.
• Cover the bulb with soil, gently firming it in place.
• Water thoroughly after planting.
• Mapira lilies will thrive in well-draining soil, so avoid areas that are prone to standing water.
• They will also benefit from regular fertilization and watering during the growing season.

The ideal time to plant Mapira lilies is in the spring, after the last frost date has passed. This is usually somewhere at the beginning of April, but it may vary depending on your specific location. The soil should be well-drained and rich in organic matter, and the planting depth should be about twice the height of the bulb.

It is also possible to plant your Mapira lily bulbs in the fall, then they’ll benefit from the chill of the winter.

It is important to water the newly planted bulbs regularly, but be careful not to overwater them. Mapira lilies prefer slightly moist soil, but they can be prone to root rot if the soil is too wet. These plants also benefit from regular fertilization, with a balanced fertilizer that is high in phosphorus.

Mapira lilies prefer a balanced fertilizer that provides equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (N-P-K). A good option is a 10-10-10 or 15-15-15 fertilizer, which can be applied every two to four weeks during the growing season. It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates, as over-fertilizing can lead to burned leaves and stunted growth.

Additionally, Mapira lilies benefit from supplemental micronutrients such as iron and magnesium, which can be provided through a foliar spray or added to the soil. Overall, a balanced fertilizer regimen with appropriate micronutrient supplementation will ensure healthy growth and abundant blooms for Mapira lilies.

Mapira lilies can be encouraged to grow back every year by following these steps:

• Plant the bulbs in well-drained soil in a sunny to partially shaded location.
• Water the bulbs regularly, especially during dry periods, but avoid overwatering, which can lead to rot.
• Fertilize the bulbs with a balanced fertilizer in the spring and summer months.
• Deadhead spent blooms to encourage the growth of new flowers.
• Cut back foliage in the fall after it has yellowed and died back naturally.
• Mulch the area around the bulbs in the fall to protect them from winter frost.

With proper care, Mapira lilies should come back each year, providing beautiful blooms in the summer months.
