what to do after flowers die?
I got an Amaryllus bulb in a "growing kit" for christmas, and it is blooming beautifully right now, grown indoors. I do know its too cold to ever plant outdoors here in OH but the flowers will be wilting soon and I know most bulbs have a dormant phase they need to go through after blooming. My grandmother has an amaryllus she has has several years that also came in a kit for christmas. it bloomed that first year and continues to produce leaves, but in 4 years it has never bloomed again. I dont want my lovely red lion to suffer the same fate. It is such a welcome sight to see this bunch of big beautiful flowers in the dark gloomy winter. any help on what to do after the blooms fade? thanx.....Chanda
