Amaryllis are beautiful with a very unique flower which starts from a bulb and usually sends up a tall flower stalk prior to the leaves. Plant the bulb, pointed-end-up, in (expanded coco puck) potting mix and gently pack soil around the bulb so approximately one-third of the bulb sits above the soil line. Water regularly and remember to rotate the pot periodically to encourage a straight stalk. Most varieties will begin blooming six to eight weeks after planting. Amaryllis come in an assortment of colours making a big statement! They make great gifts at Christmas time! Due to the seasonal nature of this product, shipment begins in mid October depending on your time zone. Place your order early to ensure availability!
