Planting and careGrow potted rain lilies in a soil-based potting mix with extra sand added. They do best when crowded and slightly pot-bound. During the summer, fertilize every 3-4 weeks with a balanced fertilizer. Outdoors, rain lilies like a moist but well drained soil in full sun. Light: Grow rain lilies in full sun, or in part shade, especially a high shade from tall trees.
