I have the rain lily growing next to my garden pond. I fertilize mine in spring and again in early summer with a small dose of a mild, organic plant food. These are very hardy plants here in Zone 8 and they bloom their socks off every time a rain storm rolls through.

Rain Lilies can be grown in containers or in garden beds. In containers, they prefer growing in a mixture of potting mix and sand. In the ground, they like well-drained but moist soils and full sun to partial shade. My rain lilies get sun from about 10am to 3pm and do wonderfully.

I've seen no serious pest or disease problems with rain lilies. Prolonged drought with no supplemental irrigation may hurt them?
