I found an easter Lily plant on the ground broken off from its bulb. Can you root them like this and if so, how or what is the most successful way? Thanks.

No. It will not root. If you want to increase your Easter lily numbers, dig up the bulbs after the tops have turned brown. Dig carefully, as the bulbs can be quite large. Often, there are tiny "baby bulbs" attached to the parent bulb. You can replant these baby bulbs and they will sprout greenery next spring. However, it may take two or three years or more for them to produce flowers.

I do not believe that you can root the stalk.
But give it a try, you have nothing to lose.
Get some "rooting compound" and follow the directions on the package.
Put the stalk in some water, keep in a warm place but not in the direct sun.

No, you can’t. Bulb plants like lilies have to start from a tuber or bulb. But you can cut a bulb in half and start two plants from one bulb.
