Hippeastrum ‘Dancing Queen’ is very easy to bring into flower indoors. Choose a sturdy pot with a layer of pot shards or hydro pellets in the bottom. The bulb should be planted in fresh potting compost. Around a third of the large bulb should stand proud of the soil level. Place the Hippeastrum ‘Dancing Queen’ bulb immediately in a warm spot in full sun. Water immediately but do avoid watering on the bulb.
A minimum of water is required until you see signs of growth, then you can water more and also add plant food to the water regularly. Stand the plant in a cool spot while flowering to prolong the blooms. Cut the stem right back after flowering.
Keeping Hippeastrum over the winter
Continue to water and feed your Hippeastrum ‘Dancing Queen’ after flowering has stopped to allow the bulb to recuperate. Stop watering in September and allow the leaves to die off. Store your bulbs in a dark, cool and frost-free place. Pot up again in December to start it growing again.
The beautifully shaped-double flowers of Hipppeastrum 'Dancing Queen' are a real catcher. They will look lovey in the vase or in bouquets and flower arrangements. Hippeastrum is still well-known by its old name, amaryllis.
