Crinum lilies are evergreen plants arising from very large bulbs. Plant the bulbs half in and half out of rich soil, in the ground, or in pots.
They grow too large for use in a window garden. Crinums grow well in tubs and are held in semi-dormancy in a cool location during the winter. When warm weather begins, they are brought into full growth outdoors.
Give Crinums lots of water and provide liquid plant food in the summer. In the fall and winter, keep plants on the dry side and withhold fertilizer. Propagate by removing offsets at repotting time, every three or four years.
