How To Grow Water Lilies In A Bowl Instructions
Pick your Water Lilie bowl. Remember to check the supply list above for specifications.
It’s important for your Lilies to have enough room to grow and bloom.
Fill your bowl up with fresh water. There is no need to let the water sit. You can plant your Liliey right away!
Be sure your Lilie plant is covered in water 4-6 inches above the crown of the plant (where it comes out of the soil).
You also want to be sure that its leaves aren’t hanging over the edges of the pot because this can cause them to get sunburned.
Add some small fish to your bowl. Not only do they look great swimming around, but they’ll keep mosquito larvae at bay so you won’t need to worry about an infestation.
Just be sure not to feed the fish so that they will eat the mosquito eggs.
Fertilize your water Lilie once every month with aquatic fertilizer tabs.
