Amaryllis

     


Amaryllis produce stunning flowers and are unique plants that grow from an underground bulb. Most often, they are purchased as dormant bulbs, ready for planting.

Plant in a pot approximately 6-8” deep and 1-2” wider than the bulb. A clay pot is preferred to ‘breathe’ and help avoid root rot. Plant the bulb in potting soil, leaving the top third of the bulb exposed. Water the soil well and move into a mildly sunny spot with a consistent room temperature. Do not water again until first signs of growth.

Light: Part-sun is an ideal location for Amaryllis - This promotes strong growth and sturdy leaves. Avoid intense direct sun as this can cause some stress to the plant. Rotating your plant often can help promote even growth on all sides.

Water: Once growth begins to emerge, be sure to water the soil fully and then allow it to dry by about 50% Overwatering will result in weak roots that struggle to hold the heavy plant upright.

Once flowers finish, you can maintain foliage growth until it begins to deplete, and which point you can withhold watering. If dormancy follows, store in a cool, dark, dry location for 6-8 weeks and resume care afterward. Alternatively, you can leave these plants in-place and resume watering when growth begins to re-emerge.

Toxicity: All parts of this plant are considered toxic.
*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting. Printable Care Sheet
