I came upon these photos that I took last year of some very gorgeous Amaryllis I was growing…and realized that if I want to repeat this for the new year, I’ve got to get going and pot them up now!
Depending on the variety, it can take 6 to 10 weeks for an Amaryllis bulb to bloom. I love having something so stunningly beautiful growing and showing itself off in the winter months.
Amaryllis bulbs like snug pots. I fill a clay pot half way with good organic potting soil, insert the bulb so it’s halfway planted, and fill in with a little bit more of the soil. Water well, and place in a sunny spot.
They’re just so beautiful.
