I receneetly bought a very large bulb at a garden show-now I can't remember what it was ,when or where to plant. It looks and feels exactly like a swede, very hard and about 13 inches in circumference



Amaryllis belladonna? Crinum? Do those names ring bells?

Or maybe an indoor Amaryllis?

Sounds like an Amaryllis bulb if so you need to plant in a pot with a mixture of compost and perlite to aid drainage as they do like to be kept relativity dry and you must keep about 1/3 the bulb above the soil level .The size of this bulb intrigues me would it be possible to have a photo.
