No rest between blooms
I've been trying to find some information on this and haven't found anything anywhere.
I bought a Chico Amaryllis last October, potted it up, and it bloomed as expected in January. Took a while before leaves appeared, along with a baby on the side, but no second scape. I stuck it under growlights with my seedlings for a bit, then popped it outside in June for sunshine, figuring the leaves would eventually die back towards the end of summer.
Instead, it shot up another huge scape the first week of September. Bloomed beautifully, I eventually cut the spent stalk off, and now don't know what to do. Not a lot more sunshine outside, and it's become a bit too cold to keep out now. I could set up my growlights and give it some rays from that, but I'm not sure what's next.
Any idea how long until the leaves will die back? Is it likely to bloom again in winter? If growlights are enough, how long should it take to restore itself? It had almost 6 months after blooming, I was totally baffled to see it bloom, when expecting it to start hibernation and am totally stumped by what to do next.
