Pre-Potted Amaryllis Growing Instructions
The ideal growing location for this pre-potted amaryllis is one that receives some sun throughout the day. Amaryllis will grow and bloom in very low light settings as well.
Water 1 cup or less until blooms forms. If the soil is moist, do not add additional water. Once blooms appear water may be increased, however only add water when the soil is completely dry.
Expect multiple blooms per stem to appear from the pre-potted amaryllis. Once the blooms have faded cut the stem back to level with the top of the container. The amaryllis may bloom 2-3 more times the season it was first received.
Once the amaryllis has started to grow only leaves it is finished blooming for the year.
How to Get my Amaryllis to bloom again?
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.
