Lily transplanting

Andreaferns11 added on October 10, 2016 | Answered

I noticed a yellow leaf on my lily plant, so assuming it wasn't getting enough sunlight, as it is covered by a tree partly, I shifted it by carefully digging around and gently pulled it up, so it came along with the bulb and roots. But it also had a bud which had just opened a crack, so I'm wondering will it bloom into flowers or not because I moved it when in budding stage?

    Transplanting can cause plants to go into temporary shock, which can cause them to stop flowering. But yours may still flower- you will just have to wait and see.
