How Long Do Bulbs Take to Show Any Growth

I have just ordered a bulb, and the name of it is, Eucomis bi color ‘Pineapple Flower’. I planted this bulb about 4 weeks ago, along with other bulbs the same day. They are all growing well except for the one I mentioned. There is no growth at all and it was planted to specific instructions it came with. Could you please give me some advice on this particular product or even a time limit as to the growth on the bulb?

Some larger bulbs take more time to grow. If it hasn't sprouted yet and you just can't stand it, dig around the bulb with your finger and investigate. You don't say where you're from, but in my neck of the woods, these bulbs are a favorite of chipmunks.

Pineapple Lily

How often do you water during winter months? Do you cut the stalk off?

ANSWERS

I'm assuming that you're using a variety of plant that is hardy in your area, and that you're leaving it in the ground over the winter. Like any other lily, once all the greenery (stalk included) has turned brown, indicating that all the nutrients have gone into the bulb, you can cut them off. The bulb has gone into dormancy, and you don't want to add any water, which risks rotting the bulbs.

Accidentally Dug Up Pineapple Lily Bulb Cluster

I just accidentally dug up a pineapple lily bulb cluster in one of my outdoor pots. If I stick it back into the pot, how deep do these bulbs have to be buried? The bulb mass is about 6 inches in diameter, so do I just let it be?

I would recommend replanting your pineapple lily in your pot at a depth of at least 6".

Overwintering Pineapple Lily

Do you cut the leaves off or let them die off before you bring a pineapple lily for the winter? First time growing a pineapple lily and I do not know how to care for it thru the winter. I live in upper Sussex county, Delaware. I do not want to lose it.
