Q.Propagating Amaryllis Flowers

Anonymous added on May 13, 2011 | Answered

I have lots of Amaryllis planted. The majority of them have never bloomed, but they look healthy otherwise. I have experimented with shade, sun, water, etc. with no luck. Also, the many that do bloom form a large bulb when the bloom dies. Is this a seed bulb that I can use to propagate?

I would try giving the plants that do not bloom some phosphorus to help them bloom.

Yes, the seeds in the seed pod can be used to grow new amaryllis bulbs, but it can take those bulbs many years before they are mature enough to bloom.
