Amaryllis Bulb

Moeworkman added on January 11, 2017 | Answered

I've forced bulbs before in rocks and water, but this year's bulb isn't producing. How long would you wait before giving up and discarding the bulb?

If the bulb is producing leaves but no flowers, it was probably too small or young when you got it, and didn't have enough energy to bloom this year. But, it still has the potential to bloom later on, so you could plant it in soil (indoors or outdoors) and let it continue producing leaves. If there are no leaves at all, the bulb is probably dead.
