Glowing!


Glowing!

This christmas present couldn't wait to get out of the box! It was doubled over when I opened and planted it on boxing day ~ but now here it is! Warm and glowing on a cold winter's day.

They are lovely flowers, Sticki! :-)) I just had to add this photo to my favourites!

Hope you can keep it for many years! :-))

I have 5 different plants in flower in our living room at present, though tomorrow it will be just four - for a couple of days! I have several more bulbs about to start flowering as well. :-))

To get them over a long period you need lots of plants & I have about 50 pots of Amaryllis bulbs! They are all grown from my own seed as well.

Did yours flower on christmas day kat?

Thanks Balcony, I hope so too! 5 out in flower must be quite a show! but 50 is amazing! There is one bud to come ~ so I hope that will flower too although it looks a little smaller?

Growing them from seed is incredible ~ that must take a long time?

That should keep me going ~ many thanks balcony ~ Im not sure I have the right conditions for growing on the seeds ~ but I will see how I get on growing and keeping this bulb and maybe add to my collection later?

thanks san, i think sometimes they have 4 flowers on the top of the stem and this only has 3 but im very happy with it.

16 Jan, 2013

 

Beautiful colour Sticki, really cheering.

I was given one last year......it is a lovely present. What are you planning to do with it once the flower dies back. The leaves form.....mine are still strong. I think I should have lifted it and let it dies back.

Thanks DD

Im hoping to try to keep it going linda ~ Balcony has given me lots of helpful advice ~ he has even managed to grow them from seed!!!

I think that by now most regular posters on GoY know my liking for Amaryllis! :-D But if anybody wants help with their Amaryllis they need only post a question & I will try to help!

It's a lovely colour. I didn't get one this Christmas. The bulbs of the previous years have never flowered again for me.

17 Jan, 2013

 

You are very kind......and helpful, thanks balcony

Thanks homebird, I'm hoping to try to keep mine but with the help of balcony's advice!

What a lovely colour Sticki :0)

17 Jan, 2013

 

it is nice, thanks sue! shows what nice presents plants are!

17 Jan, 2013

 

Beautiful colour!

We have two in bloom at the moment, and, disappointingly, they are both "white". I say "disappointingly" because we were told they would be red.

One plant is massive and looks as if it could be a Triffid in disguise. The flowers are very large also.

Agree; they make great Christmas gifts.

thank you Eirlys ~ if i could have found another one I would have chosen white or that lovely red and white striped one

sorry you were disappointed, its a real shame when labelling and information is wrong.

18 Jan, 2013

 

Thats a beauty.

18 Jan, 2013

 

thanks clarice, its nice to have a 'warm' colour!!

18 Jan, 2013

 

It sure is.

18 Jan, 2013

 

thank you

18 Jan, 2013

 

gorgeous colour, looking forward to the next one of mine opening up, it should be dark red with a black centre, fingers crossed, the last one turned out pink but was beautiful. :O)

18 Jan, 2013

18 Jan, 2013
