How to Grow Rain Lily Bulbs
Select a Planting Location
Choose a well-drained, sunny to partly sunny location in your garden. Rain lilies prefer full sun but can tolerate some light shade.
Rain lilies (Zephyranthes spp.) are typically planted in the spring or early summer, (February – April) Just before or during the rainy season. In many regions, this coincides with the arrival of the first rains. Spring and early summer provide the ideal conditions for rain lilies to grow and bloom.
Ensure the soil is well-draining, as rain lilies don’t like to sit in waterlogged soil. If your soil retains too much water, consider adding organic matter like compost to improve drainage.
Rain lilies thrive in warm to hot temperatures, ideally between 70°F to 90°F (21°C to 32°C), and may go dormant in adverse conditions or cooler winter months.
Planting Rain Lily Bulbs
Rain lilies are typically grown from bulbs. Plant the bulbs about 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm) deep in the soil. Space the bulbs 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm) apart. You can plant them individually or in groups for a more dramatic effect.
Water the bulbs thoroughly after planting. After that, water them sparingly, as rain lilies are drought-tolerant. Water when the soil dries out, but avoid keeping the soil constantly wet.
Rain lilies don’t require heavy feeding. You can apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to provide some nutrients.
Remove spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming. Rain lilies will go dormant after flowering and may disappear for a period before re-emerging.
In regions with cold winters, rain lilies may not be winter-hardy. If you experience freezing temperatures, consider digging up the bulbs and storing them in a cool, dry place over the winter. Replant them in the spring.
Pests and Diseases
Rain lilies are relatively pest and disease-resistant. However, keep an eye out for common garden pests like slugs and snails, which can sometimes nibble on the foliage.
