How often should I water my Formosa lily?

Formosa lily
Lilium formosanum
Learn More
Formosa lily is fairly hardy and doesn’t need a ton of attention. While you can grow it in a pot, it does the best grown directly into the ground in the hottest/brightest part of your garden. Since this is a bulb plant, you’ll need to be extra careful about overwatering while the plant is growing as it will rot the bulb. Once you have planted your Formosa lily, water them well once and then leave them. That initial watering will kick start their growth, but after that you can leave them be until you see shoots appear.
For the best results, you’ll want to check the moisture of the soil after the growth of new leaves. Put your finger about an 2-3 inch below the surface of the soil. If it’s still wet, you don’t have to water the plant. For potted plants, you should also check the water collection train to see if there’s any standing water. If there is, you should avoid watering the plant. For a more accurate moisture reading, stick a moisture sensor about 2-3 inches into the soil. The reading should be in the middle of the ‘moist’ category. The recommended frequency of watering your Formosa lily is once per week.
