Q.amaraylis flower

Zone allentown pa | gloria santoro added on December 6, 2017 | Answered

I purchased a bulb and followed instruction about 3 weeks ago and still waiting for something to show, and so far there is nothing appearing. What can I do or how does this flower start, and how long before it starts to show before I water it.

Thank you

This can be caused by many reasons. It could be that the bulb is old, or that it has died during its dormancy. Here is an article for forcing them that will help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/amaryllis-hippeastrum/force-amaryllis-bulbs-in-soil.htm
