Q.

Why Won’t My Amaryllis Bloom?

Zone 07869 | Marty Ariemma added on December 19, 2019 | Answered

I planted The amaryllis bulb about 2 weeks ago I’ve been watering it and it gets sunlight . After last Christmas’s bloom I cut the stem off and left the leafs on and in May I put it out to get some sunlight and warm air and in mid August I took it in and put it in a paper bag for 2 months because it needs rest, and now The cycle started over again. What’s wrong with my amaryllis?

According to the article below, after a dormancy period you will see new growth and that is the time to begin a new cycle. It takes about 3 weeks in a warm spot to encourage growth of the leaves and stem at same time. Repot in fresh soil and move to sunny window.
