Plantation of amaryllis

amaryllis plantation

December and January are the perfect months to plant your amaryllis onion. You will bury it halfway in a pot filled with a mix of potting soil and garden soil on a sandy bottom or clay balls to refine the drainage.

The size of the bulb depends on the number and even the height of the flower stalks. The smaller ones will develop one or two stems 30 to 40 cm high, the largest will form up to five stems exceeding 50 cm.

Once the onion is planted, water very little and place the pot in a sunny room, to one mild temperature (21 to 23° C), or near a radiator.

Your plant will then start to vegetate and you will quickly see (after about two weeks) point one or more green stalks at the end of which will appear, four to six weeks after planting, two or three flowers with large corollas.

A spectacular flowering that can last more than two weeks.

And after planting?

As soon as the shaft appears, keep the plant away from heat sources that are too hot and water more to keep the soil slightly moist.
The flowers, once bloomed, often require a tutor because they are heavy to carry for the stems. Throughout growth and flowering, be sure to water and bring somegeranium fertilizer for the amaryllis to develop harmoniously.

When the flowers are faded, cut the flower stalk and let the leaves continue to grow as the bulb restores its reserves. During this period, continue fertilizer application. When the foliage will start to turn yellow and to dry, stop watering and place your plant dry for three months, the time needed for it to recover before starting a new life and... a new flowering.
