Planting & Care
These bulbs are planted quite deep – plant your bulb so that the soil line is even with the ribbon tied at the top of the long stalk.
Sunlight: Full sun or partial shade
Soil: Sandy, well draining, fairly dry soil.
Water: Water in well; you may want to put water in the bottom of the hole before placing the bulb in. After they are established, they don’t require much water, but when first planting a good soaking will help them get over the shock of being transplanted.
Temprature: Minimum of 55 F.
Fertilizer: use a very light, natural fertilizer or compost.
- Though drought resistant in times of necessity, the crinum lily prefers consistently moist soil unless dormant.

- Crushed and toasted bulb is applied to piles and abscesses to cause suppuration.
- The juice of the leaf is used in earache.
