Hello, just wanted to share my experience with hardywaterlilies.net. Ordered a couple of water lilies from here and on their website they specifically state they don’t sell undersized or premature rhizomes. I ordered and attraction and a mayla lily. To say I was disappointed is an under statement. The attraction rhizome was the diameter of my pinky and maybe 2 inches long the mayla lily was less than an inch long and about the same diameter as the attraction. I contacted them after I planted them, we’ll see what they can do for me. Although planting new rhizomes will be a pain. Just wanted to see if anyone else has experience pitching from this site and what your experience was.

I have not bought from them, but the mayla grows fast and well and blooms a ton. Very bright red/pink

Hi Addy that’s what I hear about the Mayla. I’m still disappointed I spent $50 for small/undersized rhizomes. I was expecting to get quality plants that would bloom this year but I don’t see it happening because of the size.

Put them in kitty litter, put around 1/4 cup of ozmocote under the litter (I use walmart oil pans) Put the lily in water around 6 inches deep over the tuber. The sun and heat will get them going. I had one $40 tuber that was the size of my pinky it bloomed that year.

Thanks, I put the lilIes in a large pot at the bottom of my pond. I will raise it closer to the top. Also I use dyna-dirt to plant my water lilies. You can buy this on Home Depot website and feels it works better than kitty litter.

I’m sorry to come across as rude, but an unsolicited, negative review of a business seems inappropriate.

I think its great that we get poor reviews as well as good ones. Hopefully the company will get back to the OP with a response.
