  • 2. Cut the cleaned bulb base with a cutting tool in eight meters, and the cutting depth is about one half to two thirds of the bulb length.
  • 3. Disinfect the cut bulb blocks for propagation and place them in a cool environment to dry.
  • 4. Insert the bulb into the moist sand for propagation, perlite and other substrates. After about 3 months, adventitious buds can be seen at the junction of the scales and the basal disc, and gradually grow into small bulb bulbs. After separation and cultivation, seedlings can be formed.

Tissue culture propagation method of Red spider lily

Using MS medium, pedicels and ovaries were picked as explant materials. After culture, callus could be produced at the incision. Adventitious roots can form after 1 month and adventitious buds can form after 3 to 4 months. Using pedicels and scales with stems as explants for tissue culture propagation, adventitious buds and subforms can also be produced.

Sowing in natural environment, only a few seedlings pull out one leaf in the first growth cycle, the seedling stage can be transplanted once, and it takes about 4-5 years from sowing to flowering of seedlings.

Precautions: (1) Because the seeds are dormant in summer, they should avoid sowing in summer and can be sown in other seasons; (2) Sowing seeds immediately after seed collection, keep the temperature at 20℃, and you can see the radicle exposed in about 15 days.
