Christmas Amaryllis never bloomed. What did I do wrong?
I bought a Red Lion amaryllis bulb last year before Christmas from Lowe's. It came as a kit with pot/soil/bulb. I planted it as the instructions said and all it did was grow leaves. Long leaves. I left it to grow and when the leaves finally started turning yellow I cut back on watering. When the leaves finally died I quit watering all together and put it in the coolest, darkest place I could find. I checked it a few weeks ago and it was starting to grow some leaves. I went ahead and took it out and potted it. It now lives on the front porch that gets sun all day. The longest leaf is probably 4 inches long. The rest get shorter. It has 3-4 leaves. It does look like one side of the bulb is bigger than the other, but it has looked like this ever since I potted it the second time.
What am I doing wrong?
I haven't ever fertilized the buld. Could this be the problem?
