TIP OF THE MONTH: AMARYLLIS CARE

Amaryllis (Barbados Lily): Family- Amaryllidaceae


Tips to care for your Amaryllis:
  • Your amaryllis prefers a light, constantly warm position (60°-70°F). The warmer the temperature the faster the plant will bloom. Rotate the pot if the stalks bend towards the light.
  • Keep the soil only slightly moist by watering sparingly around the neck of the bulb. Remove water standing in the saucer.
  • Next, add all purpose potting mix with added sharp sand. The plants prefer to be slightly potbound. Move to a larger pot every 2-3 years.

Upkeep:
  • Water moderately until new growth begins.
  • After flowering, set in a cool dark location until new growth appears. Gradually introduce bright light. Will not flower if given inadequate light. Water every 2 weeks.
