How to keep me happy and healthy


Place anywhere

African lily can tolerate being far from a window, but will thrive nearer to a light source.


Water semi-frequently

African lily can withstand levels of low water availability for a few days.

Try our intelligent assistant Greg for personalized watering reminders and to avoid over-watering or under-watering.


Repot after substantial growth

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

After your african lily has more than doubled in size, you should repot it to replenish its nutrients.
