lilly tree

I was given a lilly tree bulb as a gift. After planting in a pot with fresh soil it grew to about 5" when it was completely eaten, \I then replanted it in new soil and a different pot, it is now about 5" and now being eaten again. Can anyone please HELP?

    Slugs/snails/lily beetles all will eat lilies.

    As above, birds also will peck soft leaves. From the level of growth that you describe, I'd take a bet on slugs. Use safe slug pellets that will not harm wild life, or any other treatment for slugs that you prefer.
