Why Is The Bottom Of Amaryllis Stalk Pinkish? What Is This, And Do I Cut The Stalk Now?
This amaryllis was a beautiful and sturdy plant. I did not have to stake it. I have cut off the blooms, but I hesitate to cut off the stalk due to the pinkish tint at the bottom of this very strong stalk. What should I do?

I'm sorry, but your photo did not come through. Most of the time, it is normal to see coloration in certain parts of the plant. If it is, otherwise, healthy then it will be likely that this is a part of the plant's normal behavior. If this is accompanied by any other symptoms, then it could be chalked up to nutrient deficiencies (usually phosphorus in cases of pink coloration) or too low of a pH.
