How do I plant my amaryllis bulb?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 16 July 2013 11:53 AM
Plant the amaryllis bulb in a pot that is 5cm (2")wider than the bulb. Use a John Innes No.2 potting compost or a multipurpose compost and plant the bulb so that only half its depth is below soil level. Beneath the bulb should be compost to half of the depth of the bulb.

Grow the plant on at a minimum temperature of 12°C (54°F) in a brightly lit position. Water sparingly at first until growth starts, then increase the frequency and apply a flowering plant liquid feed at 7-10 day intervals.
