My Amaryllis Are Blooming Again Is That Normal?

johnny49 added on May 16, 2012 | Answered

I planted Amaryllis bulbs in the fall and they bloomed beautifully around Christmas time and now they are blooming again. When do they go dormant? Should I hold back on the water to let them go dormant?
I live in Phoenix and it gets very hot in the summer.

The plant likely already went through a short period of dormancy if it is blooming again. I would simply enjoy the blooms and once they die back, the plant should begin to go into dormancy on its own, though cutting back on water would certainly help it along.
