Amaryllis-Christmas Blooming Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:
  • After initial watering, do not water again during the first week.
  • For the following two weeks, the soil should be kept only slightly moist - by adding tepid water around the bulb if necessary.
  • Over- watering will inhibit root formation - and any water found standing in the saucer should be emptied out. A slightly dry medium will stimulate regrowth of the root system.
  • Once flower stalk is well out of the bulb, water more frequently.

  • Height

    14-16 Inches
