Dwarf lily send out floating leaf
I have a dwarf red lily for about a month and it is already sending a stalk with a folding leaf at top. I read that you must cut it off to prevent floating leaf formation or else it will send out more.
How soon should I cut it off? Will it be too late if I wait until it is an inch from the surface but before opening up.
Once the floating leaf open up, will the submerged leaves begin to die off? Is there a way to put the genre back to the box, in other words, is there a way to rejuvenate it to start over again.
The stalk rises rather quickly and I am afraid that if I am away for two week vacation, it will reach the top and be too late for me to control it. Is there a way to slow it down?
