Care of Amaryllis


Raymond Irrera added on March 27, 2018 | Answered

What do you do with the stems, growing leaves, and the bulb after the blossoms have bloomed and died, to keep the Amaryllis blooming again, and when would that be?

If the flowers were pollinated, then you can expect there to be a green swollen pod. If this did not happen and the stalks are starting to die, then you may cut these off. Stop watering them, and the leaves will start going dormant. After the leaves start dying off, then you can move the pot to a dark location for a couple of months. This will give them the rest they need to continue to flower again. After this, they will be ready for watering, feeding, and put back out to begin the cycle again.
