Amaryllis

Amarylis

Amaryllis bulbs have some of the largest blossoms of any flowering plants.  They develop 3 to 6 lily–like flowers, which can reach a diameter of 10 inches!

TO GROW YOUR OWN AMARYLLIS:
            *           Start bulbs 6-8 weeks before you want them to bloom
            *           Choose a pot that is 2” wider than the bulb all around
            *           Using a good potting soil, plant so that half the bulb is showing
            *           Water well after potting
            *           Do not water again until the flower stalk appears
            *           Keep soil moist, but not wet
            *           Needs several hours of bright indirect sunlight each day

AFTER FLOWERING:
Encourage foliage growth by continuing to water, and by fertilizing every two weeks.  At the end of the summer, allow bulb to dry out for a month before starting again.
