Q.Amaryllis Leaves Are Really Huge
Hi there! I was given an amaryllis bulb for Christmas. I followed the instructions on how to plant it, etc. No blooms yet, but I’ll be patient. But the leaves are crazy…really long and they look like a fountain. Can they be tied up/supported? I’ve had to move some smaller plants because the leaves knock into them.
