Germination guide
Lilium papilliferum seeds will usually germinate in 30-365 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Sow seeds about 1mm deep in a Peaty seed sowing mix at about 22C.

Sow in a free draining and slightly acidic (not alkaline) seed starting mix. Bought seeds will have been pre-matured. If you have saved your own seeds, you may find that they need to be kept for a while at room temperature before they are ready for sowing. The seeds are usually produced in summer and need a warm season followed by a cool season to germinate.
