    It has5 big ones to the top plus one more new one plus 8-10 that have been trmed back . How many should I keep on it ? Do I need to keep a certain number of leaves on top or just let it keep putting out new ones while the old ones continue to grow .

    Well, I'm no expert on lilies, but I think I would just leave them alone and only clip off older leaves when the a) start to die, or b) become so thick that they are causing problems by shading plants underneath. Nice looking plant! I'm hoping for something similar soon.

    Exactly what WB said. If you want them lower in the water column, you can start trimming them before they get to the surface of the water. If you don't mind the shoots, then just let it go. I have two (well, 4 now), that continuously produce new shoots and have been birthing new bulbs almost once per 1-2 weeks. Their rooting system is highly complex. If you ever decide to uproot it, you'll understand how immense these plant can actually get.

    If you don't trim off the extra bulbs, they'll grow roots out of the substrate and it'll dig in and create some pretty interesting structures. I allowed this to happen in my 20gal Long and I'm about to let it happen in my 75gal. Natural designs. =] I really like it when the shoots start wrapping around each other and extend upwards in a diagonal direction. Very cool looking.

    [temporary thread hijack] Hey, Kevin, sounds like you've been doing these bulbs for a while. Would you mind having a look at my question in the thread "lilies and herbivores" and let me know what you think? Thanks! [/temporary thread hijack]
