Yearly blooming of Amaryllis

Post by Muhammad Arif Khan » October 17th, 2014, 10:41 am

Do your Amaryllis bloom regularly every year?
Mine, some do others don't.
Here is what my friend Kristi an expert on Amaryllis has to say.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION.
(I myself have several hundred bulbs, and only about half bloom every year. That means that there are half that don't bloom every year and some that don't bloom for a couple years at a time. There are no guarantees, and unless you buy new bulbs every year, it's hard to predict re-forcing blooms. If you put your bulbs out on the balcony so that they get lots of good sun and water, they should go into their own normal cycle of blooming in the springtime. I can fairly well predict that mine will bloom naturally March through June. I suppose your cycle may be different.

Hope that helps!
Kristi)

Mine bloom every year in Karachi around February (from the bulbs you gave me Arif sb.).. I have two plants which bloom twice a year, they are in pots. And there are about 7 others which didn't bloom last year ..
