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?
