How to care for your Easter Lily
Use these instructions to care for an Easter Lily. This guide will tell you how to water an Easter Lily; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Easter lilies love to be placed in indirect, bright sunlight. Too much light will burn the foliage, but too little light will cause the slow decline of the plant. Eastern light or a few feet back from a southern window is ideal.
Easter lilies prefer to stay somewhat moist. Water when 50% of the soil volume is dry. Water thoroughly and discard excess water to avoid root rot.
Your Easter lily prefers a humid environment. Place a humidifier nearby or use a pebble tray. Avoid drafty areas and open vents.
Easter lilies prefer cooler temperatures between 60-75°F. The cooler the temperature, the longer the blooms will last.
Feed your Easter lily fertilizer in the spring when new shoots emerge.
Easter lilies are toxic to humans and pets if ingested. All parts of the Easter lily, including the pollen, are extremely toxic to cats.
As the Easter lily grows it can become quite top-heavy. Stake your plant to help it reach its full height potential.
