Apple Blossom Amaryllis

My Amaryllis has four blooms. Now to see if I can get it to rebloom next Christmas.


  1. beautiful! i have a bushy bright poinsettia that is taunting me by staying healthy… kids are making book that i’ll kill it by march. i’m thinking it won’t survive past valentines day… good luck with the pretty green thing!

  2. That’s not one of those flowers that stinks, is it?

    Congrats on the green thumb. It’s all I can do to not kill the plants that my late wife lovingly tended. Seems that neglect is not a good strategy.

  3. that’s gorgeous! my brown thumb is mightily impressed.

    • These things are weeds. Unless you put it in the dark and never watered it, you would have lovely blooms, too. It’s getting them to rebloom that the problem.

  4. Lovely flowers. Good luck with the reblooming

  5. If you want it to rebloom, make sure it gets plenty of light, water and food during the summer and then let it go dormant by withholding water, and then put it in the dark in a cool place for 6 weeks, then take it out, repot it and start watering it.
