Amaryllis 1 bulb had 3 flowers Other plant had 2 flowers then last week in the night the flowers became top heavy and discovered in morning the shoots had gone over and some bits broken.

What is best thing to do. Has happened to both plants.



I've had the same problem in the past, so I try to remember to put a cane in the pot when I plant the bulb which goes in a large pot with a stone in the bottom to weight the pot down.

I'd cut them off and pop them in a vase. I bought some and every flower opened over a period of 5 weeks. change the water regularly too.
