Select a pot to plant the amaryllis bulb in. An ideal pot is 6” in diameter with drain holes at the bottom. Add soil, such as potting soil meant for container planting to the pot about ½ way up the pot. Place the amaryllis bulb in the soil with the pointed end facing up. Fill in the pot on the sides of the amaryllis bulb with the remaining soil. Water after planting to reduce air pockets.
Amaryllis tolerate dry conditions but will benefit from regular watering especially as stems and buds form.
Amaryllis tolerate a range of light conditions and can be grown in a sunny location, but will also bloom in low light settings.
Expect 2-3 bloom cycles from the amaryllis bulb in your growing kit.
Once the amaryllis produces only leaves and no stems it is finished blooming for the season.
To get your amaryllis to bloom again:
After removing the wax from the bulb. Cut off the leaves from bulb. Remove the bulb from the pot and soil it is planted in. Store the bulb in a paper bag in cool, dry, and dark location. Avoid storing the bulb in extreme heat or cold.
In late September to early October prepare to wake up the bulb for growth and blooms. Take the amaryllis out of the bag and plant the bulb in soil, add water and sun. Gradually expose the potted amaryllis to sun to help keep the growth balanced. Within 6-8 weeks new blooms will appear on your amaryllis.

HUGE Amaryllis Bulbs, Georgeous Blooms, 4-5 Flower Stalks each, with 5-6 Flowers. Wonderful!!!
Got three stems with multiple flowers on each — what a show! And long lasting, over many weeks. Friends who visited loved them. Been growing amaryllis for 15 years, nurturing and repotting so they flower again, and these are a new favorite.
This bulb arrived in good condition but had started growing and the blossom had bent over and after several weeks did not bloom. The bulb is still sprouting and hopefully will bloom eventually.
I was very surprised to find this item priced reasonably. My bulb is healthy and growing.
