Getting Easter Lilies to Bloom?

I bought 8 lilies for my church for Easter Sunday. The flower on the plant is still closed. What should I do to have the lilies open their blooms by Easter Sunday which is 5 days away?

According to this article, the greenhouse temperature affects the bloom. Perhaps you can adjust the temperature?

Hopefully your lilies are showing signs of opening for your Easter Sunday.

Sometimes lilies are sold that have not been given the "cold" treatment which forces the early blooms (I think the normal bloom time for Easter lilies is June-July) but most lilies found in stores at this time of year are either blooming or ready to bloom.

The only information that I found suggested this treatment (for potted lilies):

Easter lilies must remain moist; water them whenever the soil dries out in the top 1 inch. Must have good drainage (remove from foil pot covers or place holes in bottom and use saucer for catching excess water.


Display your plant in bright, but indirect sunlight, and protect it from drafts and heat sources.
Cool daytime temperatures in the 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit range will prolong the life of the blooms. The temperature can be even cooler at night.
