Last year I purchased a few different varieties of amaryllises from Van Engelen. My mom has a knack for getting them to rebloom year after year, I figured I’d try to do the same. Around Christmas, when my mom was visiting, we were looking at the leaves emerging from the bulbs and were debating whether or not they’d bloom or not.
A few days after she left, flower stalks started coming up. These bulbs received no special treatment, the pots were put on my front porch last spring when the weather warmed. Every so often I’d give them a watering with Neptune’s Harvest. I’m slightly amazed that they bloomed this year.
These beauties are ‘Green Dragon’ amaryllises, not your typical pink or red varieties with big showy flowers. I’m rather fond of them and hope they continue blooming year after year! I guess I’ll try giving them the same treatment again, which is pretty much nothing special.
Do you grow any flowering bulbs as houseplants?Filed under Around the House | Comments (9)
