Drooping Leaves on Amaryllis Plants


Anonymous added on May 17, 2011 | Answered

My amaryllis plant bloomed beautifully last month (second year in a row). Now I have put it outside and all the leaves have fallen down. Should I cut them? Stake them? Bring the plant indoors again? I truly love the plant.

If you did not acclimate it before moving it outside, it may be suffering a bit from shock. This is ok and it should recover. Do not cut the leaves, and if you can, stake them up. They will probably not stand up on their own again, but the plant will shortly grow new ones that will stand upon their own.
