Q.Is It Too Late To Divide My Amaryllis?

Zone Atlanta area 30096 | Anonymous added on March 9, 2022 | Answered

I have a very happy healthy amaryllis planted outside. It blooms with 4 giant red flowers every May but last year got huge, with visible secondary bulbs. Each bulb produced 4 flowers last year, to give me 12 total, over two months. It has gotten too big for its space, and I planned to divide it last fall but didn’t get a chance to. Will I put it into shock if I divide it now? Do I have to wait now until after it has bloomed this year? (And if so, how long do I need to wait? Until fall?) It now has 3 secondary bulbs that I can see, but only one leaf has started to poke up from the ground. Thank you!

If you divide now, you may sacrifice the blooms but it’s worth the effort if they are overcrowded. The article below says in warmer regions you can divide now.
