Amaryllis Care

Planning on giving (or receiving) a winter Amaryllis plant this season? Well, you are in luck. They are easy to care for. Just water only when top inch of soil is dry to the touch and place in a warm, ideally sunny location. 

After flowering, the bulb can be reused by following these steps. Remove the faded flowers and then the stem once it sags. Treat bulb and its leaves like a normal house plant for the summer. Once the leaves turn yellow in fall, cut them to about 2 inches and remove bulb from soil. Clean and store in a cool place (40-50 degrees) for a minimum of 6 weeks. Plant bulbs about 8 weeks before you would like to bloom.

Care: Bright light prefered • Low Water • Ave indoor temperature
