Each Amaryllis Kit comes in a copper colored pot with carrying handles, 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.

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.

Getting Started
When Your Bulbs Arrive

Open the box right away and check the contents

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)

Shoulders above soil
Amaryllis can get top-heavy when they bloom, so a sturdy pot is best

Watering

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.

Amaryllis Outdoors (Zones 9 - 11)

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.

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.

    Comments about American Meadows Christmas Gift Amaryllis Kit:

    This Christmas Amaryllis growing kit was a gift for my daughter. She is not a plant person but I know she loves lilies and Amaryllis has a similar (large white) flower. She didn't believe it came with dirt, but when watered, the compact soil (package?)expanded to cover the bulb. I can't see it (she lives on the opposite coast), but as long as she watered it, she should have at least one flower by now. I'll have to let you know - but I have faith in your products to perform well. (Little by little, I'll bring her over to the Planting Side!)

        This is probably the most beautiful amaryllis I have ever purchased. Great color for the Christmas Season if you can get it in time to plant it and have it bloom.

            Comments about American Meadows Christmas Gift Amaryllis Kit:

            This was not the best looking flower of the six amaryllis I bought from this site this year, but it was the best display. Flowers are large. Stem is tall. The second stem came up about 4 inches lower than the first stem so that the flowers did not interfere with each other. All flowers on both stems were open at the same time to make an absolutely spectacular display!!! Later another stem came up as the grand finale.

                Every year I purchase an Amaryllis for my Mom for Christmas.
                She loves to watch the Amaryllis grow and the blossoms to open. She loved the color of this one as it was unique and very lovely. Santa usually brings me one too, so we are always comparing our plants. It's fun and gives her and me something to look forward to in our long winters.

                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                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.

                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
