Different nutrient solutions alone or in combinations were applied as foliar spray on Asiatic lilium hybrid Tresor and evaluated for different characters. Plants sprayed with only water were taken as control. Other treatments were done with the dose of nutrients used in preparation of tissue culture Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium (1962) in different combinations. The nutrient groups were differentiated as MS macro, MS micro and MS vitamins. Results revealed that Plants treated with MS Macro and MS Vitamins, resulted maximum plant height (70.83 cm), leaf length (11.87 cm) and leaf width (1.40 cm). The application of MS Macro + MS Micro + MS Vitamins exhibited better results on all flower bud characteristics of Lilium hybrids cv. Tresor which advanced the days to flower bud appearance (18.67), maximized flower bud length (8.78 cm), flower bud width (4.25 cm) and minimized bud duration (19.36 days), Flower length (9.5 cm), Flower width (16.5 cm) and Bloom life of whole spike (14.84 days), maximum bulb weight (34.83 g), maximum bulb circumference (14.68 cm) and at par (12.84) with the best result obtained in number of effective roots per bulb (12.94). However, maximum vase life was found with application of MS Macro nutrient solution.
