How to Plant Amaryllis
Amaryllis flowers add color to any home or garden. Start by placing your amaryllis bulb roots into potting soil. Bury so the upper half of your bulb is exposed. A stock will grow a few weeks after planting. Water your amaryllis only after the soil dries out. When the flowers fade, snip off the old stock near the bulb. Amaryllis is long-lived and re-blooms easily. Keep them in bright light and fertilize once or twice a year. Amaryllis can be kept inside, but they thrive outside during spring and fall. With these gardening tips, your amaryllis flowers will grow beautifully year after year! [Source: BHG.com]
