Caring for Your Amaryllis
Welcome to one of nature’s easiest and most beautiful bulbs! Native to South America, Amaryllis (Hippeastrum ssp) is a flowering tropical plant grown indoors during winter in all but the warmest parts of the United States. It is traditionally associated with the holiday season, though it will bloom at all almost any time from late winter through early summer if given the proper care.
When Your Amaryllis Arrives . . .
Your Jackson & Perkins amaryllis arrives pre-set into potting soil in a nursery container. It is fresh, healthy, and ready to take off! All you need to do is water it in, making sure that the top of the bulb is poking above the soil line and the roots are covered with soil.
You may already see green shoots emerging from the top of the bulb when it arrives; if not, they will appear within just a few days.
Place the bulb in any sunny spot in a room-temperature house, away from icy drafts. It is not fussy!
As Your Amaryllis Grows . . .
Amaryllis grows so fast that you can almost see it happening! Within days, your bulb will send up a thick green shoot. Buds appear within a month to 6 weeks, and your Amaryllis will bloom about 7 to 10 weeks after planting.
Keep the potting soil moist throughout the growing process, especially when the buds and blooms appear. The soil should be moist but not wet.
When Your Amaryllis Blooms . . .
If you wish to prolong the life of those spectacular blooms, set your Amaryllis in a cool location away from direct heat and sunlight.
You may see a second and even a third shoot appear after the first, with later buds and blooms. Simply remove the spent petals from the first flowers and let the secondary shoots continue to come into bloom.
After Your Amaryllis has Bloomed . . .
If you want to keep your Amaryllis for another season of blooms next year, cut the flowers carefully off when they pass, and keep the soil moist until the central stem flops over. Trim it to the top of the bulb.
Continue to water the Amaryllis, and fertilize several times during spring. When the leaves begin to turn yellow (typically in late summer or early fall), cut them back to an inch or two from the bulb.
Gently remove the bulb from the soil and store it in a cool (40 to 50 degree F is ideal) dark place. Many people simply place it in the crisper of the refrigerator. Store it there for at least 6 weeks.
When it’s Time for Another Bloom Season . . .
About 2 months before you want your Amaryllis to bloom again, remove it from storage, replant it in fresh potting soil, and repeat the care instructions. You’re ready for another beautiful season of blooms!

5 Most Commonly Asked Questions About Amaryllis Gifts
1. Amaryllis hasn't even started to get leaves yet! Are you sure its going to bloom?
The Amaryllis that we ship have been in cold storage (40-45F) and it will take a week (or maybe longer) for them to show new growth after the customer gets them started. We do not send bulbs already budded because it would have a better chance of drying out and will take much longer to re-start the blooming process. Always use tepid to room temperature water when watering your amaryllis to get them started.
• The single amaryllis will need about 8 ounces (1 cup) of water to stimulate growth and that the containers that have 3 bulbs will need 10 to 12 ounces of water. For containers with four to five bulbs, these will need 12 to 16 ounces (2 cups).
• Without sufficient water and air temperatures (65-70F), bulbs will be really slow to take off so be sure to water well (but not to over water as this can cause bulb rot) and remember to provide warm temperatures. After the initial watering, make sure to check the bulbs once a week and add small amounts of water as needed.
• To check to see if water is needed, simply touch the surface of the soil, or poke your finger slightly into the surface to see if it feels moist or not. If dry then go ahead and add ½ of the recommended amounts mentioned above for each size container.
• Continue to check weekly or as needed.
• Once growth initiates feed bulb with a water soluble fertilizer every two weeks
2. How long will it take to bloom?
Most amaryllis may begin to bloom in about 4 to 6 weeks; however some may require an additional 2 to 4 weeks depending on type, location, and temperatures. All amaryllis are unique and individuals and bloom time may vary slightly.
The best place to keep your amaryllis once in bloom is in a bright window with cooler temperatures of 60-65 degrees F.
3. The leaves are so very long! They are flopping over everywhere. What do I do?
The best place to keep your amaryllis once it is in bloom is in a bright cool window. The leaves are stretching to the light so give them very bright light to avoid flopping of foliage.
We recommend that you use our amaryllis stakes which will provide support to avoid breakage under the weight of the bloom. Our amaryllis stakes will allow the amaryllis to remain upright and attractive for a showy display.
4. How do I re-bloom my amaryllis?
Cut back the flower stalk(s) 1 to 2 inches above the neck of the bulb after blooming stops, (but allow the foliage to grow).Continue caring for your amaryllis as a house plant by keeping it fed and watered so the soil is moist, but not wet. You will need to stop feeding in August.
It’s now time to get the bulb ready to go back into dormancy and prepare the bulb for re-blooming. The foliage will already have started dying back which is normal If you want your amaryllis to bloom at a specific time, count backwards about 10-12 weeks to determine when to stop watering. During the dormancy period, you will need to place your amaryllis in a cool, dark place such as a closet or basement.
Now, it’s time to bring your amaryllis back to the growth and bloom stage. Bring back into bright light, resume watering and remove any dead foliage. You may want to re-pot in some fresh potting soil to rejuvenate the bulb as it grows. Leaves will follow shortly and then blooms.
5. It has been 6 weeks and I only have long green leaves? Why?
A bulb that produces leaves first makes you wonder if there is something wrong with the Amaryllis because it is only growing leaves and showing no bud yet. That happens with some and it isn't something out of the ordinary.
A bulb may grow leaves before flowers or it may do it in reverse. In either case you should give the plant warmth, light and careful watering and allow it to continue to grow. These are hybrid amaryllis and by the nature of their breeding you will definitely see larger leaves. This is normal and do not be concerned.
Please don’t forget our amaryllis stakes to help support the foliage as well as the blooms.
