I have a bag of L. squamigera that were dug this past weekend at a farm in Michigan. An expert from MOBOT said they should be plamted righ away with an inch or two of the top left exposed.

Dear Friends,
This is a frequent discussion, but some bulbs do not take to 
rowing in pots although the reason may not be clear.  And some may 
e very slow to adjust to incorrect planting depth. Indeed Lycoris do 
ot bloom well in pots and they have preferred planting depths. Other 
ulbs are far more tolerant.
	This is the value of this group as we discuss specific 
xamples of what works and what fails.
	I love to hear of these challenges.	Makes the next round 
o much easier.	Best	Jim W.
