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.
I received 3 bulbs. I planted them right away. Within a week they were out of the ground. I never saw such awesome flowers. 4 to 5 large flowers each stalk, then they sent up a second set of flowers, they are now sending up another stalk each. That's 3 stalks each and sets of flowers. It's like the fourth of July. Bam, bam, bam!
I got six of these and they were huge healthy bulbs. They have each put out two flower stalks with large gorgeous flowers. Since I got them on sale, the price was great also.
Huge bulbs, all ready to start growing and blooming. All three are already showing signs of flower stalk pushing thru, ready to bloom. I'm not sure yet if they will bloom true, but I am impressed by the bulb size and quality. They came tagged and bagged in a burlap sack.
With bulbs like these, I can't wait to see the blooms. Always buy from HB, ALWAYS!
I love these Amaryllis.. Two of them has bloomed already with 4 big blooms each.. A very pretty pink and white..
