Saving Bulbs

wryorwhiteFebruary 13, 2010

I received two beautiful plants as gifts - a deep red amaryllis and red with blue tulips and would like to save them.

Here's what I've done so far. I let them bloom (2x - perhaps 2 bulbs? - for the amaryllis and once for the tulips) Then I cut off the remaining stems. I have not watered the amaryllis since I received it at Thanksgiving and watered the tulips once per week since I received it 3 weeks ago. I live in apartment and have no place to plant them other than the pots in which they were initially planted or another pot purchased for such purpose.

What should I do? Put the pots in a closet? Remove the bulbs and put them in my crisper (far from apples which I know neuter them)? Leave the pots out and water it periodically. Sorry to be dim but I've never tried to save them before.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

don't know if this is exactly the right forum for your questions...
You might post on the Amaryllis Forum & the Bulbs Forum.

Best luck!
