Inca Husky™ Peruvian Lily Care
Place the Inca Husky Peruvian Lily in part to full sun. This plant needs at least 4 hours of light daily, but closer to 6 hours is ideal. Water when the top layer of the soil feels damp. Peruvian Lilies like moist conditions, but the soil should promote drainage and not be soggy. For more advanced gardeners, maintain a soil pH of 5.5 to 6.5.
Fertilize every other week while the plant is blooming. Use a water-soluble plant food high in nitrogen. Remove dead growth as necessary, but otherwise, this plant does not require much pruning. Deadhead the plant to keep it looking nice and help it maintain its compact size. This plant can be propagated through division during the spring. Dig up and separate the rhizomes and replant them in a sunny spot.
Inca Husky™ Peruvian Lily Spacing
The Inca Husky Peruvian Lily will grow 8 to 12 inches tall and 14 to 16 inches wide. Space 16 inches apart to create a consistent planting or space them further apart if you want a more spread-out landscape. This plant makes an excellent container plant, and one plant can comfortably live in a 12-inch container.
