Has anyone grown amarylis as a house plant? Are they hard to grow? I think they are so pretty and would like to do one in the house if possible.
You will need to fertilize them to fatten up the bulbs so they can bloom again after a rest period!You can actually do a really neat container with them and it works with paper whites too. Get a nice glass wide mouth vase or dish. Fill it with about 3" of stones or decorative glass beads. Add water to the top of the rocks. Place your bulb in ,roots down and watch it grow. Choosing a container to fit the bulb is essential. You can place more than one bulb to a container. When the bulb dies back remove it from the container and allow it to dry for storage. You can force them to bloom again by allowing them to dry, place them in the fridge for about 6 weeks and then start all over
Not sure how to tell you River, but the guy is BS'ing you!Oh great information...woo hoo!
Now here is my quesion, the bulbs i should be getting the guy said are ab out the size of a penny maybe a tad smaller...so pretty tiny. After i plant them, how long will it take before they actually put on the first flower..are we talking like 2-3 years?
