Planted 7 Asiatic Lily bulbs about 5 days ago. Most of the bulbs already had long crooked shoots on them. I have a couple that have already emerged but not aure if there growing correctly. Since the shoots were crooked they are growing sideways and one is a very deep purple and to me doesn't look right. Is this normal and should I not be worrying?

Whenever I've grown lillies in pots they grow crooked and towards the light. I have to keep turning the pot. Yours looks a bit to much sideways. How deep did you plant it?

I planted them about 7 inches from the top of the bulb. They are pretty big pots. Does that purple one look normal for a lily?

It looks odd to me, I've never seen this before. You can try using a plastic fork to help it go up. I wonder if that is not a lily, and it was mislabeled or the bulbs wasn't healthy to begin with. I've seen bulb food at the garden nursery buy my house, I wonder if you go to a garden nursery and ask maybe they can suggest it?

I planted the purple one a bit lower to cover the shoot. It now looks like this with others coming up. Still weird looking to anyone? Maybe a different type of lily?
