After Bloom Care

Posted by val1 z4 UT (My Page) on

I purchased a beautiful Wonderland Amaryllis this year. It had three bloom stalks and was absolutely gorgeous when in bloom. I am new to amaryllis and would like to know how to care for the bulb and achieve a rebloom next year. I have cut back the bloom stalks and have lots of big, wonderful leaves. The plant is located in a southern window where it receives lots of light. What type of fertilizer should I use and how often should I fertilize? There is also a small bulb next to the large bulb. Should I plant it in a separate pot or can I leave it until dormancy?

Hi Val1
If you scroll down a little you'll find the Frequently Asked Questions 2.0 post that distills much of the wisdom of the experienced Amaryllis growers on this list into one easily referenced post. I have found it very helpful. Bet you will, too.
If your questions are not answered there, post again. Good Luck.
