Amaryllis 'Elvas' red-white

Hippeastrum 'Elvas'
Winter Wonderland
Bring a winter wonderland indoors with this double-flowered amaryllis 'Elvas'. The amaryllis has 2 stems with at least 4-5 flowers. The flowers are white with hints of red. You can let the plant flower in a pot, vase, or in a dish, or you can keep it as a 'dry bulb', without soil or water. This amaryllis bulb practically grows on its own. Within 3 to 6 weeks, the first flowers will appear.
Space the bulbs out when planting in open ground. The distance between plants is three times the width of the bulb. Plant the bulb the depth of three times the bulb's height. Plant the bulbs in full sun or partial shade. Water the bulb immediately after planting. Don't water it until the soil feels dry to the touch.
All our flower bulbs have the Holland Selection A quality mark, and come with a 100% guarantee that they will grow and bloom. You can be certain that the flower bulbs will grow.

Planting+

What do I need?
• Decorative pot
• Potting soil
• Hydro grains

How do I plant the Amaryllis in a pot?
This flower bulb is delivered separately. Put the hydro grains on the bottom of a sturdy pot. Add some potting soil on top and plant the bulb with the stem facing upwards. About one third of the bulb can stick out above the soil. Place the pot in a warm, sunny spot and water it right away. Try not to pour water directly onto the bulb.

Planting the Amaryllis directly into the ground
The Amaryllis will bloom outdoors in the ground as well. A location protected from the wind works best. Loosen the soil well and mix in the potting soil. The depth of the hole should be about three times the height of the bulb. Water the ground afterwards so the bulb can grow well. Ensure that the bulb is brought inside before the first frost, because it is not winter hardy.

Growing a dry amaryllis bulb
Amaryllises can also be grown as a dry bulb or in water. For dry use, place the bulb in water for a day after you receive it. Afterwards, you can place the Hippeastrum on a dish with other decorations and it will fully bloom on its own!

Amaryllis in a vase
This indoor bulb can also be grown in a special Amaryllis vase. Place the Amaryllis in a bright, warm spot. All you need to do is watch the water level and refresh the water once in a while.

Care+

What do I need?
• Watering can
• Plant food

How do I care for the Amaryllis?
In the beginning, the flower bulb only needs a little water. Once the Amaryllis blooms, you can water it more. From then on, you should also add plant food to the water regularly. During bloom, the Hippeastrum will remain in good condition for longer in a cooler place! Once the flowering period is over (end of spring), cut off the flower stem entirely.

Maintaining the Amaryllis
Keep giving the Hippeastrum water and food after the flowering period. This allows the plant to store food inside the bulb. You can stop doing this in September, after which the leaves will die off. Store the flower bulb in a cool, dry place so the Amaryllis can be planted again in December.

Extra+

Hippeastrum ‘Elvas’ has beautifully shaped double flowers that are very pleasing to the eye. Look wonderful in the vase or in bouquets and flower arrangements. Hippeastrum is still well-known by its old name, amaryllis.
