I've never grown one of these, I always look at them in the garden centre, and then don't do anything, I'm afraid I'll kill it....:((((

it's lovely, and so may blooms...

This is a lovely one Clarice, we usually get given a couple for Xmas but not as nice as this I must admit.
Crissue, Im notorious for killing indoor plants but these manage grown despite my best efforts! Should be a doddle for you.

A beautiful stem of Amaryllis flowers, Clarice! :-))

I've been growing them for many, many years, Crissue, & have hardly been a year without them since my sister gave me my first ever bulb as a Christmas present in 1981!

I've written several blogs on these lovely bulbs, my 2nd blog on GoY was on Amaryllis if you want to have a look at my blogs.

To Crissue: Here is a link to a page on the care of these bulbs by an American company that specializes in the plants:

http://www.amaryllis.com/pac.htm

I'm on their email list & so get updates frequently. They have some stunning flower on their site!

TT the other stem that was growing at the side of it as reached these flowers but still in tight bud.

You've done so well from the one bulb !

3 Nov, 2011

 

Its amazed me, how well its doing.

I found a bulb on the 2nd bedroom windowsill that has a bud well out of the bulb! I thought I might have seen a flower bud on one bulb when I brought them home from the allotment. I couldn't be 100% sure as the leaves sometimes look like the bud when still in the neck of the bulb. When it flowers I'll post a photo!

Thanks Balcony....

Cheers.

Checked the bulb today & the stem is about 20cm high already!
