information: This beautiful seasonal Amaryllis plant has always
been a favorite of the indoor gardener.
Amaryllis are very easy to grow. They prefer a cool location. Keep the soil on
the dry side... but not totally dry. Your flowering Amaryllis plant will not need any
fertilizer while its blooming.
After the flowers have bloomed out, move your Amaryllis to a dry, cool and dark area. Leave the
plant in this location for eight weeks. Don't water during this
period. Remove any dead or dieing foliage as it withers. After the eight week
dormant period, move the plant to a well lit location and water
thoroughly. Your Amaryllis should bloom again in four
to six weeks.
Amaryllis is available in 6" or 7" containers from mid November thru the Christmas holiday. Your
local Colorado Garden Center or Floral Shop should have a good selection of
plants on hand including the new hybrid varieties.
