  1. Default dwarf lilies-- leaf shape and color

    I bought a dwarf lily bulb a few weeks ago with just a few leaves on it. At first, it just had a few long, beautiful pink leaves like the second image...:

    After a few days of just letting it sit on the gravel like they had at my lfs, I decided to bury the bulb (didn't do it at first because the leaves and roots are both very fragile). Anyway, it's started growing a lot faster since then and the new leaves are a really dark brown color and less skinny.

    Is this normal? If so, how many different colors can I get out of the dwarf lily?

    That's normal. The first leaves come in arrow shaped, but then they start putting out the normal leaves as they get older.

    Ahh. I thought it had to do with how fast they were growing and how much light they get.

    How big do they get? I see a bunch of different info on em... Do they just grow up and eventually have rounded leaves that float on the top like a regular lily?

    Oh and I know some bulbs aren't supposed to be buried, but mine seems to like it. Can these be buried or should I not do it?
