It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
Each Amaryllis Kit comes in a decorative red tin pot, plus liner and potting soil. The jumbo bulb in this one is Christmas Gift, pure white flowers on stems 20-24" tall and each bulb will produce at least two stems of flowers for you or your gift recipient. This one is a great quality gift, everything is packed in the pot, with a full-color top label which also carries the simple instructions. So even if your gift recipient is an old hand at amaryllis, you'll know they've never received a kit quite like this one.
Ever grown an amaryllis inside the house? It's a snap. There can be rain, cold or snow outside, but all you do is water this "magic lily", and it zooms into growth. In just a few days, the stems arise, and in a few weeks the enormous flowers begin to open--huge lily blooms up to 8" across! (Our kit contains a bulb that will produce at least two stems, each with 3 or 4 flowers!) Then you have the big show for over a month. It's just 6 to 10 weeks from first watering to full bloom.

Choose a standard size flower pot, so the large bulb has approximately 1" around the sides and at the bottom (these bulbs do not need much root space). Amaryllis do not need specific soil, however we suggest using soil, or a mixture of soil, peat and perlite (do not use pine bark, as it may encourage rot). Place the bulb so the top inch or so of the shoulders sticks up out of the soil (see below)
Water very sparingly until the sprout is well out of the bulb. When first planted, place the pot in a sunny , and add "bottom heat" if possible. Many people do this by placing the pot on a radiator. Once the sprout appears, water regularly, but do not overwater. Overwatering is the quickest way to kill amaryllis. Your amaryllis will grow quickly and produce its spectacular huge flowers with minimal care.
Remember to keep turning the pot regularly to make the stalk grow straight, as they have a tendency to grow toward the light. Once the bulb is flowing, it is best to keep the plant out of direct sunlight. Your bulb will produce several flowers on each stalk and most will grow two or three stalks. Remove each flower as it fades.
After winter bloom, if you want to rebloom your amaryllis, it's quite simple. When blooms fade, cut off the tubular flower stems near the top of the bulb, leaving the foliage to continue growing.
Water as usual and apply water-soluble fertilizer every four weeks. Once spring arrives and frost is past, sink the Amaryllis pot in the garden in a sunny place. Continue to fertilize. At the end of the summer when frost threatens, simply pull the pot out of the ground, wash it out, and take it inside, and allow it to dry out completely in a warm dry place like a utility room. Once the leaves are dead and the bulb dry (usually 5 to 6 weeks), the bulb is ready for repotting. Simply cut off the dry leaves, and repot your bulb in fresh potting soil and start the growing cycle again.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
