Don't mean to hijack a thread, but I have an observation/question.
During a replant, I accidentally broke the lily off its bulb. It had about 5 leaves at the time, biggest being about two inches. I was a little worried about it, but figured it had enough leaves and roots to make it. So I planted it, and it seems to be doing okay now two weeks later. Curious, I also threw the bulb back in to see what would happen, and sure enough it is sprouting another plant.
The observation is this might be a cheap way to grow more than one of these from the same bulb. The question is has anyone else ever done this? Did the first plant survive if so?
I've seen some pictures of red tigers that were just gorgeous, so I'm hoping they will both make it.
