Amaryllis Planting and Care

Quick Tips

  • Planting period – October until the end of April
  • Flowering period – December until the end of June
  • Flowering time – 6-10 weeks
  • Larger bulbs produce more flowers
  • Always store un-planted bulbs in a cool place (40-50 degrees F)

Preparation for Planting

The base and root of the bulb should be placed in lukewarm water for a few hours before planting. Remember to store the bulb(s) in a cool temperature if you cannot plant the bulbs immediately after receiving them.

Planting

The bulbs should be planted in a potting compost. Plant the bulb in the compost up to its neck, being careful not to damage the roots. Firmly press the soil down around the bulb to secure it in place after planting.

Placement & Watering

Plant the bulb and position it in a warm (68-72 degrees F) place with direct sunlight since heat is the necessary factor for the development of the stems. Water sparingly until the stem appears, then gradually water more as the buds and leaves appear. The stem will begin to grow more rapidly and the flowers will develop at this point.

After-Bloom Instructions

After-Flowering
After the Amaryllis has stopped flowering, it can be made to flower again. Cut the old flowers off the stem and when the stem begins to sag, cut it back to the top of the bulb.

Leaf Growth & Development
Continue to water/fertilize for at least five to six months, allowing the leaves to fully develop and grow. When the leaves begin to yellow, cut the leaves back to about two inches from the top of the bulb and remove the bulb from the soil.

Bulb Storage
Clean the bulb and store it in a cool, dark place (such as the crisper of your refrigerator) for a minimum of six weeks.
CAUTION: Do NOT store Amaryllis bulbs in a refrigerator that contains apples as this will sterilize the bulb.

Plant Again
After six weeks you may remove the bulbs whenever you would like to plant them. Plant roughly 8 weeks before you wish to have them bloom again.
