How to Plant
Amaryllis can be potted with or without soil. We'll send you directions on how to do both!
Where to Plant
A bright room indoors, or a sunny windowsill. If you are planting numerous bulbs in one container, space bulbs about 1" apart.
When to Plant
Plant about 8 weeks before you want blooms, you can store the bulbs in a cool dark place until you're ready to plant.
When to Expect Blooms
About 8 weeks after planting.
Take care that the bulb is not in contact with the standing water if growing without soil, and if potting in soil, do not over-water as the bulb is prone to rot - the soil should be kept just barely damp.
The tall stalks with large blooms are top-heavy. Rotating your growing container regularly will help the tall bulb grow straight, and adding a little stick to support the blooms can help as well.
