Is there a way to delay an amaryllis bloom? I received two as gifts and will be away from home for about 5 weeks. Leaves have already appeared and I'm certain to miss the entire show. Any advice?

Placing it in a cool (but not cold) location will slow the blooming down, but once it starts you cannot stop it from blooming all together. If you place it somewhere where the temps are around 55F, this will slow it down quite a bit and may be just enough time for you to get back to see it.
