Nothing signals the onset of the holiday season than the appearance of Amaryllis bulbs. Amaryllis are one of the easiest, if not THE easiest, bulbs to grow! The bulb itself contains everything it needs to grow and produce blooms that will brighten your indoor spaces. Amaryllis can be grown with or without soil. Amaryllis blooms are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors. Their beautiful blooms are a sight to behold during the dreary winter months.

Growing Instructions

Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) is a tender bulb and needs to be planted in pots indoors throughout most of North America. To grow indoors as a house plant proceed as follows: Expand the soil block which comes with the kit, following the included directions, then fill about half the pot with the medium. Set the bulb atop the soil, filling in with soil around the bulb to maintain its position. Add the moss on top for a decorative touch. About the top third of the bulb should be left exposed above the soil level, leaving room in the pot for watering. Amaryllis bulbs like room temperatures, and exposure to sunshine will keep them shorter. As the flower stalk grows towards the light, rotate the pot frequently to prevent toppling. Sit back and enjoy!

Care Tip

Amaryllis blooms will last longer if the plant is moved to a cooler place at night (45-55ºF).
