Making lily babies

Propagating lilies via leaves? Who woulda thunk! I’m going to try it today! Finally, a use for all those yogurt cups I’ve been holding onto.

Jim sent me a couple pics of his calla lilies. These were the same lilies he planted last year but didn’t bloom. This year, they are blooming their heads off–and Jim is now a fan! He mentioned he fertilized them heavily last year, which may have been the cause of his first-year doldrums. They are making up for it this year, it seems!
