Easy to Grow: 1. Start with the pot. You should use a sturdy pot that leaves 1 or 2 inches space between the pot and the bulb. Plant the bulb in good quality potting soil with approximately the top 1/3 of the bulb showing above the soil surface. Do not use a pot that is sharply tapered or very shallow because you want room for decent root growth.
2. Add water so the soil is moist, but not soggy. Do not over water.
3. Keep the Amaryllis in a warm location (70-75°), but not in direct sunlight.
4. Water on a regular basis throughout the flowering period.
5. After flowering, remove the flower stem just above the bulb and continue to water.
Planting Instructions: If you cannot plant the bulbs immediately after receiving them, store them in a cool, dark temperature between 40-50 degrees F. If sprouting has already occurred, it is best to plant bulb as soon as possible.
When to Plant Outdoors: Plant outdoors in the spring and fertilize throughout the summer. After first frost, dig bulb and store bareroot in a cool dark place for at least 8 weeks. Repot the bulb and a new cycle will begin.
