The Amaryllis is a true tender bulb. It performs best when grown under warm (70 to 75 F) temperatures for 9 to 10 months to promote flowering and vegetative growth, followed by 2 to 3 months of either cool dry storage or cool growing conditions. The use of one of the latter conditions is required to promote reflowering of the bulb. Of all flowering bulbs, amaryllis are the easiest to bring to bloom. This can be accomplished indoors or out, and over an extended period of time. The large flowers and ease with which they can be brought to bloom make amaryllis popular and in demand worldwide. The amaryllis comes in many beautiful varieties including various shades of red, white, pink, salmon and orange. There are also many striped and multicolored varieties, usually combining shades of pink or red with white. Planting Period: October until the end of April. Flowering Period: Late December until the end of June. Flowering time is 7-10 weeks. The base and roots of the bulb should be placed in lukewarm water for a few hours. Remember, if you cannot plant the bulbs immediately after receiving them, store them at a cool temperature between 40-50 degrees F. Plant the bulb up to its neck in the potting mix, being careful not to damage the roots. Press the soil down firmly to set the bulb securely in place after planting. Plant bulbs 8 weeks before you would like them to bloom. Do not store amaryllis bulbs in a refrigerator that contains apples, this will sterilize the bulbs. Clean the bulb and place it in a cool (40-50 deg. F), dark place such as the crisper of your refrigerator for a minimum of 6 weeks. Store the bulbs for a minimum of 6 weeks. After the amaryllis has stopped flowering, it can be made to flower again. Cut the old flowers from the stem after flowering, and when the stem starts to sag, cut it back to the top of the bulb.
