When Do I Divide Amaryllis Bulbs?

miols002 added on January 2, 2011 | Answered

I have 8-year-old bulbs that have formed up to 5 additional bulbs in the same pot. Should I repot them, divide them, or leave them alone?

You can leave them for now. Amaryllis actually does best in a crowded pot. If you are not looking for them to bloom soon or after they have bloomed, you can separate the pup bulbs from the mother bulb and repot them each in their own pot. It may take a year or so until they bloom again after that while they settle in.
