The lily is a fragrant houseplant that will thrive with lots of sunshine and a good drainage system-inside or out. When the plant's leaves wither and turn yellow, allow them to fall off. This ensures the part of the plant underground has received plenty of nourishment and will produce more plants for you in springtime!
