 Well  my  red  and  green  lily  grow  similarly  and  i  havent  been  able  to  figure  this  as  well.  Although  i  have  managed  to  propagate  them  by  taking  the  shoots  from  the  root  and  replanting  them.  But  they  do  reach  the  surface  very  quickly  once  new  leaves  are  established.  I  see  them  reach  there  in  a  matter  of  3-5  days.  Folks  any  help  for  this  would  be  great.

 Guys,  just  keep  on  trimming  the  leaves  before  they  reach  the  water  surface.  You  will  have  to  actually  train  the  lily  to  stay  small.
 Avadhoot,  your  tank  is  just  too  small  for  a  lily.  
 
 Thanks

 Hello
 
 Lilly  needs  to  be  trimmed  regularly.  Sometimes  once  in  3-4  days  to  avoid  them  reaching  the  surface.
 
 After  sometime  of  regular  trimming  they  will  grow  nice  and  bushy  and  also  remain  short.  Occasionally  they  will  tend  to  send  a  quick  leaf  to  the  surface,  but  make  sure  it  is  cut.  Also  another  reason  for  the  lilly  to  reach  the  surface  is  lack  of  light.  They  need  high  lighting.  
 
 just  an  example  of  regularly  trimmed  lilly.  There  are  red  and  green  mix  in  this  image  
 
 
 
 regards
 
 Niranjan

 I  concur  with  others'  comments  that  lilies  need  to  be  "trained"  not  to  shoot  floaters.  In  particular,  a  lily  that  has  learnt  it  can  reach  the  sufrave  can  be  particularly  stubborn.
 
 For  a  quick  shortcut  --  try  this:  
 
 1.  Uproot  your  lily  (along  with  the  bulb  assuming  it  has  one  --  carefully,  they  tend  to  come  off  the  bulb  rather  easily.  
 2.  Clip  off  all  the  leaves  including  as  much  stalk  as  possible  but  being  careful  not  to  damage  the  crown.  
 3.  Clip  off  all  the  roots  too  and  replant  the  bulb  crown  side  up.
 4.  Voila!  Your  lily  will  soon  grow  a  new  set  of  submerged  leaves.  Then  one  day  it  will  suddenly  start  shooting  one  floater  followed  by  another.  Clip  each  off  before  they  reach  the  surface.  After  about  a  dozen  clippings  the  plant  will  start  growing  submerged  leaves  again.
 
 *  IF  your  lily  doesn't  have  a  bulb  you  have  to  treat  it  more  carefully  and  uprooting  it  isn't  usually  a  good  idea.  Just  clip  the  leaves  as  closely  as  you  can  and  if  you're  brave  run  a  circle  around  its  base  with  a  knife.
 
 I  have  sometimes  gotten  by  with  clipping  just  the  leaves  but  the  above  approach  has  always  consistently  worked  for  me.
