Most lilies produce daughter bulbs which cna be separated and grown on, some produce tiny bulbs on the stems and these can be grown on.

You can also grow from seed collected when the seed pods split, and you can take off bulb scales when the bulbs are dormant and plant them in a tray of peat/sand mix indoors.
