Q.Follow-up To Lily With 5 Sepal Question
Sorry. As a newbie I couldn’t find a way to append the photo I mentioned in my response to Susan’s response (but somehow a picture of apples did appear!). I’m trying this route to post a photo of one of my 5-tepal lilies, with a small green leaf just below it which could be the missing one, as Susan had suggested.

That is a leaf that is growing very close to the flower! It is not uncommon for these lilies to be missing one or more petals. There is no need to worry about it.
