Planting Amaryllis

Amaryllis are quite stunning flowers in full bloom and require very little care. Indoor amaryllis are planted with 1/3 of the bulb exposed from the soil line. Place the bulb in your container (paying close attention not to damage the roots), then fill the container with potting soil, leaving the top portion of the bulb exposed.  Water the bulb thoroughly upon planting and do not water until the medium is dry.  Once a sprout emerges, your plant really doesn’t require much more water; if it does need water a few drops will do.  Too much water can cause the plant to grow too tall and weight of the flower can cause the plant to tip.
