Q.How Can I Make My Amaryllis Plant Bloom At Christmas

Zone Lakewood,Colorado 80228 | mrandmrsaloha added on November 16, 2023 | Answered

It has been on my porch and has grown long leaves. DoI cut it down and store in a dark room? Do I water or fertilize it?

This will be due to a lack of dormancy. This is necessary to get it to bloom. Taper off watering a little at a time until the leaves start to die off. Once this is done, it will need a rest period in a dark, cool location for anywhere between 1 and 3 months. After, you will introduce it to light, slowly while starting to water as well.

By this time, it should be blooming.
