Amaryllis in Forcing Vase Instructions
Place the polished river stones to a depth of about 4 inches in the vase. Carefully trim off any roots on the bulb that look brown or dry, leaving only the whitish, fleshy ones. Place your Amaryllis bulb roots down in the vase, and place the rest of the stones around the bulb, making sure to leave the top third of the bulb exposed.
Add water to a level of about 1 inch below the base of the bulb. Don't let the base sit in water, or it can rot. Place the vase in a sunny window or in a room where the temperature is above 60° F. If the temperature is maintained between 70-80° F, your Amaryllis will bloom more quickly. Check the water level every day, and add as needed.
Once a shoot emerges (in 2 to 8 weeks), rotate the vase frequently to keep it from leaning toward the light.
