Amaryllis Plants


Anonymous added on September 7, 2013 | Answered

I have 4 'old' amaryllis. I put them on my patio as I do every year, fertilize 2 to 3 times and let them grow their leaves until they die. I then put them in cellar --quite dark, near a sink and water occasionally during the winter. When I see the first pale leaf peeking up, I take that plant upstairs to a light window. When it really gets growing, I move it to a sunny window, and get beautiful flowers. DILEMMA! We had a mostly a cold, rainy summer until August, which has been cool but more normal. Two of the pots had finished with the old leaves and I went out to bring them in and found they had already started putting out new leaves. What do I do now?

    You possibly won't have blooms on these plants this year. If so, treat themas you usually do, and they should bloom next year.
