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.55 gallon planted community

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?
