The Guide to Caring For Your:
Amazon Lily (Eucharis x grandiflora)
Watering:Amazon Lilies prefer moist but well-drained soil. Water regularly, making sure to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter when the plant goes dormant.
Lighting:Amazon Lilies prefer bright, indirect light. Place the plant near a bright window or in a greenhouse where it can receive adequate light. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.
Humidity:Amazon Lilies are native to the humid Amazon rainforest, so they prefer high humidity. Increase humidity by misting the plant regularly or placing a humidifier nearby.
Feeding:Amazon Lilies benefit from regular feeding during the growing season. Use a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks or top dress with compost or worm castings.
Pests & Deficiencies:Amazon Lilies are generally pest-free, but can be prone to mealybugs and spider mites. Keep an eye out for these pests and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if necessary. Deficiencies in nutrients can cause yellowing leaves, stunted growth, or lack of flowers. Use a balanced fertilizer and make sure the plant is getting adequate light and water.
