The leaves on my amorilla plant has never died but keeps growing but don;t bloom. what can I do to keep the bulb.

Canada Ca

The plant bloomed and then just keeps growing longer green leaves. It never died or the leaves never turned yellow.



I think you may be asking about an Amaryllis - and you may well have one called 'Papilio'.

I have one of these, and like yours, it hasn't ever flowered - yet. The advice is to feed it and keep it going so that the bulb builds up its strength to produce flowers.

I am looking forward to mine flowering maybe next year!
