We have South African Amaryllis! These bloomin' beauties are due to flower 4-6 weeks after potting, which means they should be flowering just in time for Christmas. We also still have some other Dutch varieties, including some that are already potted and starting to bloom!
When you purchase an amaryllis bulb, it already contains everything that's needed to produce a living bouquet of big, beautiful flowers. All you need to do is plant the bulb and water sparingly.
Amaryllis bulbs may be planted in individual pots, or several bulbs can be grouped together in a larger container. Pots should have drainage holes on the bottom so excess water can drain out and the roots won’t get waterlogged.
They may also be grown without soil! Fill a vase or watertight pot with about 5” of pebbles or coarse stone. Add just enough water to cover the stones. Position the bulb on top of the stones so the water is barely touching the bottom of the bulb.
