Add a little color to your holiday season with the Red Lion amaryllis! This plant will bloom all winter and add a touch of spring to your home! It needs very little watering. It can take 6-8 weeks for them to bloom.

Your amaryllis bulbs will bloom again and again, provided they are properly cared for. After the bulb finishes blooming, cut off the flower stalk close to the base. Keep the plant moist and add house plant fertilizer. Stop watering in August, and allow the plant to dry out completely in the sun. In early fall, remove and clean the bulbs of old scales and dead foliage. Roots should be fleshy and not damaged. You can re-pot when you are ready to restart the process.

*Shipping starts mid-November.*

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.

Received quickly. Bulbs are large and look healthy. Been a bit too cold to expect much for growth so far, but one of three has a 1" leaf appearing. While the other two have no growth yet, they do appear as tho they are about to.

Dear Holland Bulbs
Hi there - I wanted to let you know that I’m extremely happy with the both the service that you provide and the product itself.

In January I had requested for an amaryllis bulb. This came promptly and well packaged - so I appreciate the great service.

I had ordered the bulb as a gift for my sister in law who is currently undergoing chemo. I had once read about how therapeutic it can be for people who are undergoing treatment, to have a project to do, especially one that deals with living things such as plants. Since she is not neutropenic, growing the amaryllis seemed like a perfect project.

On her birthday, I presented her with your bulb, and I also gave her a pot that could fit the bulb snugly. She was happy to receive it and absolutely loved the picture of what it would turn out to look like, and then became apprehensive as she claimed not to have a green thumb. But I told her that it was guaranteed to grow so she had to give it a chance.

I am thrilled to report that she actually did plant the bulb, and the fact that it didn’t need pre-chilling was key. And it’s growing beautifully! This has helped her to focus on something living as a project during this time.
