Amaryllis, Striped ‘GIANT! 40+ cm’

GIANT! Colossal Bulbs- (huge, 40 centimeters around). Amaryllis are a great favorite with exceptionally huge blossoms. These are the huge amaryllis mother bulbs that are about the size of a large grapefruit. The mother bulb amaryllis can produce as many as 4 flower stems, some stem clusters containing six flowers. The mother bulb amaryllis are rare and expensive but well worth the extra money for a flower lover. They are a wonderful plant for indoors in the winter and very early spring months. A super VALUE and a nice gift idea. This is a top quality Amaryllis bulb (40+ cm).

The Amaryllis is a beautiful, fascinating flowering bulb. It is not hardy in places that have extended periods of frost, having originated in tropical regions. They make good container plants and can be delightful cut flowers. The major Dutch breeders have spent the last two centuries hybridizing these specimens to bring us the flower we know and love. Today’s cultivars have stalks ranging from about 12″ to 24″ with each stalk having four to six flowers. With care, these bulbs will bloom every year for many years.

Planting/Care Instructions +

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.

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.
