Amarylis


Amarylis

This a bulb given to me by my son last Christmas. I think it was a good one, as it has another bud coming too. I ‘ve put it behind the other plant as its stem is so long and bare.

That looks good FF...ideal to place the other plant infront.Looks more attractive.

Josie, I had to do a double take on this photo, until I realised what you have done! Excellent position for it.

Me too! Looks very effective, good idea.
The amaryllis has such pretty flowers.

Well done, Feverfew! 😀 An excellent idea that had never occurred to me! While the flower is the attention stealer the scape can be a bit unsightly on its own. ("Scape" is the name used for these bare flower stems that have no leaves).

Don't worry about your Amaryllis it will flower when it's ready. Did you know they need a couple of months of cold and no water so they can rest? If they don't get it they will take a lot longer to flower!

I have a new bulb my daughter gave me for Christmas, it is just showing the tips of leaves at the moment, no sign of a bud in the neck of the bulb.
