How do I plant my amaryllis bulb?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 21 November 2013 03:45 PM

Plant the amaryllis bulb in a pot that is 5cm (2")wider than the bulb. Use a John Innes No.2 potting compost or a multipurpose compost and plant the bulb so that only half its depth is below soil level. Beneath the bulb should be compost to half of the depth of the bulb.

Grow the plant on at a minimum temperature of 12°C (54°F) in a brightly lit position. Water sparingly at first until growth starts, then increase the frequency and apply a flowering plant liquid feed at 7-10 day intervals.
