I think that, other than plant breeders, most go with rhizomes so they get a predictable plant with lilies. Are you looking for a fun project or just trying to get some going in a cost-effective manner?

Looking for a winter project to do inside with growing lights. I've done the whole Rhizome thing.

Well one issue is that my lake is 60-70 acres and I need a way to propagate a lot of plants to create some shoreline cover areas. I have some plants established, but if there was a way to get hundreds of plants at least started inside it would make a huge difference.

Is the lake very new? My reason for asking is that if it is not new, perhaps some environmental or biological factor has prevented colonization of the shoreline? Did you find that the plants you started did fine without protection from wildlife?

Down here on the La Tex border there is no way I would put spatterdock in my pond. it is very aggressive here and hard to control.


Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.

Same here for spatterdock, but not sure about its value in a 60 acre lake. I would sure be confident before adding it though. I think cultivated lilies are a better bet, and they are attractive too.
