Q. Rain lilies

The green stems are drooping. Is this normal? The soil is moist and the plant sits in the sun.

Drooping stems could indicate the plant is becoming weak from excessive moisture or root problems. Make sure the soil is well-draining in the planting location. Otherwise, the plant could be drooping if it's grown too "leggy" because of over-fertilization or low light.

Yes, but this is very difficult. It is recommended that you grow them from splitting up the bulbs.

Really, you want to plant these in the fall, but this all depends on where you are located. They need a cold period to break dormancy, so if your area will still remain cold then you should be able to plant now.
