Simply stunning, amaryllis is a traditional gift that includes the joy of witnessing a natural bloom. Our take on the classic amaryllis bulb arrives planted in a 6 1/2" diameter birch pot and is finished with moss, pinecone, and a red satin bow. Following the simple care card, Potted Amaryllis Bulb should bloom indoors after 6–8 weeks. Requires 2nd day shipping.
Amaryllis bulbs are hardy indoor plants that grow with sunshine, a little water, and tender loving care. Your amaryllis bulb is presented in a birch wood container without drainage holes in order to protect display surfaces.
Watering: Amaryllis needs to be watered to begin the blooming process. Upon receipt, water your amaryllis bulb until the soil is very damp. Do not overwater; the container is not equipped for drainage. Water sparingly until growth is clearly under way, then water whenever potting mix at one finger depth is dry to the touch.
Light: Keep your amaryllis in a sunny window (south- or west-facing is best). Room temperature (60-75?F) is ideal; the warmer the room, the faster the bulb will grow.
Turn the pot daily to promote balanced growth (the stems will lean toward the window). In the average home, flowers will appear 6-8 weeks after first watering. Bloom can be prolonged by moving the bulb to a cool location at night. We do not recommend replanting.
When your amaryllis flowers start to fade, don't throw the bulb away! Online guides can help you properly care for your amaryllis bulb so it can bloom again next year. Enjoy!
