Hello : )
The original bulbs all got pulled out by the goats & they ate all the tops
& bulbs off, only leaving the small hardened stem sections from the center,
they were young plants & had never flowered before, the cutting was from
the middle of the stem & was about 6cm long, i used a little rooting gel &
never really expected it to grow, so i just stuck it in a moist edge of the
garden & left it alone.. It took about 15 months to grow & flower.. I have
grown babies from other liliums from "stem bulbs" before which are common
after flowering, but the cutting grown plant flowered long before any of my
stem bulbs..

Was it before flowering or after flowering?
