I recieved this plant as a gift and I don’t want to kill it. How often does it need water? Do you water it from the top or do you let is soak water from the bottom? Do I plant it out side or is this an inside plant? Please help.

Easter Lilies will tolerate a fair amount of dryness for a short period of time so just water it thoroughly from the top or bottom when the soil feels dry to the touch. You can keep it indoors near a window until it is finished blooming then move it outdoors. After the foliage dies back cut the stem just above the bulb. Easter lily bulbs require at least a few weeks of cool temperatures (40’s) to bloom well next year. Plant the bulbs about 6 to 8 inches deep to protect from freezing.

Water it from the top when it needs it, and when it gets ugly plant it, outside, in full sun. Cut off the dry foliage, and wait for next years beauty.
