Take Care of Your Amaryllis
Keep your amaryllis looking its best with this easy step-by-step guide.
Steps 3: In spring, when new leaves emerge, top-dress with fresh soil, keeping the top of the bulb exposed. Resume frequent watering and fertilizing. The amaryllis should bloom again in late spring or summer.
Step 4:In early fall, stop watering and feeding after foliage fades (though some amaryllis are evergreen in mild climates); remove dead leaves. Move container to a protected spot. (In cold-winter climates, bring the container indoors to a cool, dry place such as a basement or garage.)
Note: To start new plants, set bulbs 2 to 3 inches apart and 2 to 3 inches from the pot sides, with bulb tops above soil level. Then follow steps above after plants bloom.
