Tritelleia Care: Tips For Growing Triplet Lilies Plants
The most common question is “How do I grow triplets?”
There are many different ways to grow triplets. Some people like to keep them small, some like to have lots of them, some like to keep it simple and just enjoy their beauty or maybe even want one for themselves. Whatever your preference is, there are several things you need to consider before you start growing triplets.
What kind of soil do you have?
If you don’t have any good quality potting mix, then you will not be able to grow triplets. You must make sure that your soil is well drained so that all the roots get enough water. If your soil isn’t draining properly, then the roots won’t receive enough moisture and they’ll die off. Soil with a high organic content helps retain moisture better than loose sand or loam soils.
How much light do you have?
You need plenty of sunlight for your plants. Too little and the leaves may wither up, but too much and the flowers might not come out at all. A sunny window with bright lights is best. If you live in a place where it gets dark very early in the morning, then you probably won’t be able to grow triplets because they’re sensitive to night time temperatures.
How big will your triplets get?
When you plant the bulbs, how big are you expecting them to grow?
If you let them flower and bloom, then you might be disappointed by their size if you’ve planted them too close together. The bigger the bulb, the bigger the plant will be.
What do you want to use the bulbs for afterwards?
After your plants bloom, you’ll have bulbs left over.
