why do my gloriosa lillies rot from the top down



This sound pretty normal Wilbersmith - I have now withdrawn water from mine ready to store for the winter.

Hi Meanie, do you take the tubers out of the growing medium and store themover winter or do you leave them in the pot. I have been leaving mine in the dry pot then taking them out in spring and re potting them them with new compost. Not sure if it's the right thing to do but it's worked so far.

That's exactly what I do too Rohima.

Thank you Meanie. I feel better now that i know i am doing it the correct way.

I never said it was the correct way - just what works for me!!!! One tuber last year was two when I lifted this spring, so hopefully three or four tubers next spring if I'm lucky!
