Amaryllis Care Instructions

Amaryllis Gift
ARRIVAL:
Each bulb arrives pre-planted in a grower's pot nestled in its decorative container. Bulb arrives in the first stages of growth.
BLOOM TIME:
6-12 weeks, depending on variety.
PLACEMENT:
Direct sunlight (65-75°F). Blooms will last longer if moved to a cool spot (55-65°F) at night. Turn regularly to keep stems from leaning toward the light source.
WATER:
Remove packing material on top of the container, and add water until soil is moist. Keep the soil moist but not soggy.
RE-BLOOMING:
After the blooms have faded, cut the stalk off 1-2” above the bulb. The leaves will continue to grow and nourish the bulb. Continue watering. When leaves start to wither, stop watering, remove old leaves, and store at 45 -55°F. 6-12 weeks before blooms are desired, return to room temperature and begin watering — lightly, until growth is observed, then keeping soil moist.

TRANSPLANTING:
In zones 8-11, transplant outdoors in spring into organic, well-drained soil. Sun-part shade. Exception would be exotic amaryllis, such as Papillio, which is recommended to be kept as houseplant indoors everywhere.
