Description

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 preplanted kit contains a bulb that will produce one or two stems, each with 3 or 4 flowers!) It only takes 6 to 10 weeks from first watering to full bloom and you'll have a big show for over a month.

Note about Gifts: If you are ordering gifts that will require shipping to more than one address, please create separate orders for each address, since shipping for each must be recorded separately.

Quantity Discounts and Corporate Gifts: If you'd like 15 or more kits, please call 877.309.7333, ext. 12 for special quantity discounts on this product.

    Comments about American Meadows Apple Blossom Amaryllis Plastic Pot Kit:

    I absolutely love American Meadow's amaryllis! I won't even look at any other. Over the years I've accumulated quite a few. The bulbs always produce large, multi-flowered blooms. I've even had a couple that sent up another stem after the first died out! These were outside though. The kits make wonderful gifts as well!

      Comments about American Meadows Apple Blossom Amaryllis Plastic Pot Kit:

      I purchased 4 different amaryllis bulbs. They were large and bloomed shortly after I planted them. They each had 4-6 blooms and were as colorful as the pictures. I have an actual amaryllis flower bed and have some planted in other beds as accents.

        Bought this for the first time hoping it would bloom during the Christmas holiday. It arrived healthy and ready to grow. All I did was put it in the soil mixture for the pot, water it, and pay attention to it! It bloomed right on time and continued to bloom for a couple weeks. It was gorgeous.
        I'll do it again next year!

          I bought two of these just before Christmas and the worst snowfalls we've seen. The bulbs arrived quickly and were easy to start and maintain. I loved that I had them inside on a window sill and still they grew and bloomed brilliantly. These are perfect for everyone from newbies, kids through to expert gardeners/landscapers. Yes, I could buy some nicer pots to plant them in as they came with plastic pots just like the image depicts but I would have selected different pots. Go for these bulbs as they grew fantastically with several blooms each.

            I bought this as a gift for someone that is older and has no gardening experience at all. She fell in love with this and thought it was the best gift she got for her birthday. Really enjoyed the instructions on how to plant. They were very clear and helped her feel as if she could grow it without a problem. Thanks!!!

              After blooming in the pots, we plaanted the bulbs in the yard. From experience, we know they will come up year after year and spread.

                How-To Guides

                Foolproof Amaryllis, Indoors and Out

                Everyone loves amaryllis, and if you've grown them, you know how quickly and beautifully they bloom, almost like magic.  Any bulb with an eight to twelve-inch bloom that flowers in just a few weeks in a small pot has to be special.  That's why amaryllis has been the top "Indoor Bulb" forever.  It does just fine in very mild zones out in the yard, but in most of North America, amaryllis is a house plant, and one of the few that is happy to bloom indoors while the snow flies outside. Best of all, growing them beautifully takes absolutely no gardening talent or experience, and that's why they're so popular in "Gift Kits" for the holidays.  If you've never planted a seed or grown a bulb, you can be an amaryllis expert in minutes. Simply plant your bulb and add water. It's really that simple.

                Growing Amaryllis Indoors. (For Outdoor instructions, see below.)

                Most amaryllis are imported from Holland, and arrive in the United States during the fall season.  Then, they're sold in garden centers and online for bloom as houseplants during the holidays and into the winter. First, let's cover the basic "How-To" for indoor growing:

                When Growth Appears
                In Flower
                Minimum 60°
                Water
                Minimum 60°
                Water
                Water
                Heater
                Sparingly
                Bright Light
                Keep Moist
                Don't Overwater
                Keep Cool


                Pot, Soil and Watering:

                Amaryllis samba
                If your amaryllis doesn't come in a "kit" with soil and pot, you'll need to find a proper pot.  Amaryllis bulbs are the size of a very large onion (or larger), but they like to be somewhat crowded in their pots.  Choose a pot that allows about one inch all around and one or two inches below your bulb.  For soil, Martha Stewart simply suggests "potting soil" but another expert suggest 1 part loam, one part peat moss, and one part sand.  When you pot the bulb, be sure to leave its "shoulders" sticking up out of the soil.

                Once your bulb is planted, water sparingly until the sprout is well out of the bulb. (It won't take long.) Then water regularly and your amaryllis will produce its spectacular huge flowers. Remember to keep turning the pot regularly to make the stalk grow straight as they have a tendency to grow towards the light.

                Aftercare:

                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.

                Since these bulbs are tropical (native to South America), they can be grown beautifully outdoors in very warm and frost-free zones.  This means from southern Georgia down through Florida, south Texas, and much of the Pacific coast.  Planting time in these areas is usually September or October, and if the bed is well-cared for, the bulbs will stay in the ground and flower for years. If you'd like to propagate your amaryllis, our friends at Floridata.com have good Instructions.
