Hello all, I have to agree with Diana and Jim regarding Lycoris in pots. It seems = to me that Lycoris can be flowered successfully in pots and the key is = moisture. Jim is always emphasizing the importance of moist soils and = he's right. The problem with potted bulbs is that they are very prone = to drying out at the roots, particularly if the root-tips are growing in = the coarse drainage material deep in the pot (and they usually are). = Lycoris definately resent this. Those that have flowered successfully = for me have been in deep pots stood on a bench of damp sand which is = always moist. The roots love creeping out through the drainage-hole and = wandering around in the damp sand - masses of them. I keep them under = glass in summer where they get hot but never dry - even when dormant. I = try not to re-pot them unless it is absolutely necessary but they seem = to come to no harm if the roots are not allowed to wither. Not every = Lycoris I have has flowered it's true - but some now flower regularly = and the rest are doing much better since I got fed up with Jim going on = at me about moisture and decided to follow his advice. Congratulations to those responsible for the wiki (whatever that is). I = can confirm it even works for simpletons. Regards. Den Wilson Isle of Wight UK.
