Plant Information

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.

Planting & Care

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)

Outdoor Amaryllis

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 Minerva Amaryllis Kit - Plastic Pot:

      I have this huge blooming flower in my kitchen. It opened the first bloom on New Years AM when I woke up to two flowers opened. It has needed support as the flower stalk is very tall, but the 8 buds promise over a month of beauty, then the second flower stalk is coming up as well. Only a huge healthy bulb could produce such blooms.

        Depending on the vigor (age) of the bulb(s) 6-12 weeks to bloom is the norm for my Americanmeadows minerva. Year in and year out. Very consistant. At the end of the growing season (end of September for me) I put them in a dark dry closet. Periodically I check and cut off dead leaves and shake out dry soil from their pots. I look for Easter on my calendar and plant them 6-8 weeks before. The young bulbs come through nicely before Easter and the Mother 2007 bulb comes out at 12 weeks! A joyful thank you to American meadows for making available top notch bulbs!

                Beautiful!!. Planted bulb 2 weeks before Christmas. It took almost 2 months for the first bloom. If all flowers open we will have 18 on 4 stems. Flowers look white with red velvet sprayed on them. Next year we will buy and plant earlier so we get holiday blooms.

                            I was a primary school teacher and would plant 2 amaryllis bulbs each year for the children to watch grow. I called them the 'magic plant', as most had never seen a bulb grow above the ground. I wanted my grandchildren to have this same memory, so I sent a basket and 3 bulbs to them. Not only did they enjoy the stages of growth, but these bulbs continued to die back and rebloom! I have never had this happen with bulbs from other companies. At last count, over 4 sets of blooms have been produced by these bulbs. Definitely a great miracle to witness. I will be ordering more this year.

                            Q & A

                            Plant With These:

                            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).

                            Find Your Planting Zone:
