The present was conducted to evaluate foliar fertilization efficiency on growth, development and quality of the flower of lilium cv Stargazer. The treatments were five, including the control, (with 186-102-174 fertilizer to soil): fertilization based on the diagnosis with 100 % fertilizer to soil, foliar application of honey with 100 % fertilization to soil, and use of the fertilizer NV3 with two levels of fertilization to the soil (100 % and 50 %). For the distribution of the treatments in the greenhouse a completely random design with nine replications was used. Variables measured at the end of the crop cycle were plant height, basal and apical diameter of stem, number of leaves, SPAD readings, fresh and dry weight of the plant, chemical analysis of nutriments in plant tissue (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu and B ). In the treatment where foliear application of honey was performed, response increased for the plant height, number of leaves, basal and apical diameter of the plant; while treatment NV3 affected SPAD readings, fresh and dry weight of the plant, days to floral differentiation and flowering. There were no significant differences for macronutriments, iron and boron. Treatment NV3+100 % had the greatest number of days of vase life.
