Q.My Amaryllis Bulb Is Sprouting From The Top & Bottom. Remove Bottom Shoot Or Plant Sideways?

Zone 77306 | lnebgen added on December 17, 2021 | Answered

I bought some amaryllis bulbs a month ago. I’m just now planting them. I live in Zone 8. We’ve had an exceptionally warm December, and the bulbs have all sprouted – one of them has shoots from the top AND the bottom. What do you recommend, cut off the bottom shoot or plant the bulb sideways?
