Replanting Amaryllis Outdoors
I live in Pasadena, MD. Can I replant my amaryllis outdoors or must it remain indoors always? If so, how do I care for it so it blooms again next year?

You can plant it outdoors in the summer, but it would need to be brought in every fall as it cannot survive the cold. That being said, amaryllis bloom best when crowded, so if you plant it out in the garden, the blooms will never be as nice as when you grow it in a pot. You can split the difference and place the pot outdoors for the summer, which will make room in your house and also ensure you get the best blooms.
