Amaryllis

The Amaryllis belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family and is actually called Hippeastrum. Amaryllis and Hippeastrum are two closely related genera and are often confused. The biggest difference is in the stem. Amaryllis has a massive stem and Hippeastrum a hollow stem. Hippeus means knight and Astrum star, hence the Dutch name Ridderster.

Choice

Hippeastrum is nowadays available in many types and colors. Whereas this used to be mainly red and pink, now almost all colors are conceivable. Large-flowered, full-flowered, small-flowered, leguminous and multiflora types have become available in a wide range in recent years.

Care

Can withstand much light and shade. The soil must be kept moist, additional fertilization is not necessary

Bloom

You can save an amaryllis in a pot to make it bloom again. After the last flowers, you must remove the stems. Leave the bulb in the pot and water. After 7 months cut the leaf and remove the bulb from the pot. Place it in a cool, mostly dry place, 10-17'C (Basement). Leave the bulb for about 10 weeks, then replant it in a pot. Give the bulb water again and maintain room temperature. The bulb will start making leaves again and then give flowers again. Good luck.

Water and humidity


Amaryllis on glass or dish: Remove the bulb from the pot and rinse well under the tap (potting soil must be from the roots). Let the bulb dry and place it on a bowl or in a glass. The bulb needs no water to flower.

Amaryllis in the garden: This bulb is also doing well outside. The bulb can be planted outside from the beginning of May. Also keep the soil moist for the best result. Make sure that the bulb is in a place where it cannot catch too much wind so that the petals remain beautiful.
