Dear Muhammad Arif khan you and Newton saying right, bulbs in crowded form having marvelous display but depends upon container or pot requirement.
AOA, Asim, so far we have the impression that, the bigger the pot and fewer the bulbs better it is, but is it so?
To my mind there are multiple factors involved;
1 Surface area of soil required by the roots of a bulb.
2 The depth to which roots can grow.
3 The nutrient requirement and there availability.
I plant Amaryllis in 10 inch pots up to 3-4 bulbs, Lilium, 5 bulbs in 14 inch pot, Foot Ball lily 5 bulbs in 18 inch pot and Rain lilies 50 or more in 12 inch pot.
I feed them at least once a month.
Next year I plan to put 9 bulbs of lillium and Foot Ball lily in 18 inch pot for experiment.
