I have a lily that has a mutant sport on one stem. Is there a way to try and grow more of these? Should I try and let it go to seed or take out the one bulb from group of bulbs?

Stem cuttings are the best means of ensuring the sport's characteristics in the next generation. Seeds (bulblets) are not reliable carriers of the sport's genetics. It sounds like an interesting project.
