amaryllis in water

Zone portland, oregon; indoors | Anonymous added on February 25, 2019 | Answered

In your article you say "Add water to about an inch below the base of the bulb. This is important. The base of the bulb and roots should be the only parts touching the water; otherwise, rotting of the bulb will occur." It sounds like the base of the bulb should touch the water, but also be an inch above the water. Which is correct? Thank You

This just refers to the tolerance level. The best level is an inch below the base, but it can tolerate the bottom of the bulb being in water. So when you water you will want to go no lower than an inch below the base, and no higher than the base of the bulb.
