Q.Amaryllis With Dozen Small Bulbs

Zone 6A--I live in Nova Scotia | Anonymous added on January 22, 2022 | Answered

I have an amaryllis bulb that was huge when I got it two years ago. Last winter I didn’t get a bloom, but I got lots of leaves growing all over. This year I took it out of cold storage and the big bulb has broken down into at least a dozen small bulbs about a inch across at the largest point. Will any of these ever bloom?
