The Glory Lily needs a large pot with a layer of pot shards or clay pellets on the bottom and filled with fresh potting compost. Stand the pot in a sunny spot indoors. The tuber should be planted 8 cm deep. Gloriosa will thrive in rather moist compost that is allowed to dry out between waterings.

Lily Splendor In a greenhouse

This tropical climber will feel most at home in a greenhouse or conservatory and will reward you by flowering profusely.


Gloriosa will be grateful for some sturdy support. Water Gloriosa superba 'Rotschildiana' generously in the summer, allowing the potting compost to dry out between waterings. We advise regularly adding plant food to the watering can when watering. Snip off spent flowers to encourage reflowering. Gloriosa superba 'Rotschildiana' can be put outdoors onto a sheltered, sunny patio in late spring as long as the temperature stays above 15°C. Stop watering in the autumn when the leaves start to turn yellow.

How to keep your Glory Lily over the winter

The Glory Lily will not withstand frost. There are two ways of getting them through the winter: 1) Place their pots in a cool, frost-free area (5°C – 10°C) and allow the potting compost to dry out. During their rest period they should not be watered. Remove the tubers from the pot in the spring and replant them in fresh potting compost. Water and feed. 2) The tubers can be removed from the pot before the winter and allowed to dry out. Wrap them carefully in newspaper and allow them to rest in an unheated area at about 15°C. Plant the tubers again in the spring in fresh potting compost, water and feed.


Gloriosa superba 'Rotschildiana' can really be enjoyed as a cut flower because the flowers last a long time in the vase. Would you like to use it as a cut flower from your garden? Carefully snip the complete stem from the plant and, as soon as possible, put it into a vase of luke-warm water containing cut flower food.
