I live in a retirement facility
Last Christmas season when I announced that I was going to try to keep my amaryllis over for next year I found 8 other orphans out side my door. In mid May I placed them in my small assigned flowerbed. Sept. 6th I lifted them, drenched them with Malathion and then with Wilt Pruff. They have been a wine cooler @ 50deg. F. ever since.
How long do they need to be there to achieve dormancy?
How many weeks from cooler to bloom?
Obviously I am a novice, AT 80 yr., so any help will be appreciated.
