Just exactly how many amaryllis do you have in your home? Must be a lot! I do have two started now, after Christmas clearance bargains. I never did anything with last year's amaryllis, they've been sitting in their pots dozing, but I think one is starting to bloom again. We'll see if I'm right!


Really nice. I have some paperwhites coming up.


You have the prettiest Amaryllis! To have so many stalks come up at once really makes a lovely presentation.


Those are beautiful but I'm particular to the miniature...didn't know there was such a thing...I'll have to scope out the availability for next year!


Another beauty Kathleen. Do you still have to stake the miniatures? If not they would be so much better to grow.Have a wonderful weekend.


I'm curious to know whether they need to be staked as well. 'Fairytale' is beautiful and cute at the same time.


Thanks for your comments everyone.

Robin ~ I have 20+ Amaryllis that I've collected over the years.

Sweet Bay and Lona ~ I never stake the miniatures ~ not because they don't get tall but because the flowers are so much smaller, the bulb doesn't get top heavy like some of the larger flower Amaryllis do.


The diminutive 'Fairytale' blooms are so sweet. What a difference in size compared to 'Clown'!
Both absolutely gorgeous!
You do so well with Amaryllis. Do all 20 bloom for you every year? Mine are hit and miss. I'll have to look back and reread your post on their care.
We're expecting a low of -4ยบ overnight. The cold and snow just keeps coming in waves! Wake me when it's over! ;)
