Simply stand the amaryllis (Hippeastrum) bulb on the neck of the glass vase, do not let the bulb itself come in touch with the water. Immediately place the bulb in full light in a warm place in the living room. Keep the water level up.
You shouldn't need to water much but do keep your eye on the water level and top up when required. The bulb will grow naturally and soon you will see it starting to shoot. As the roots grow, the bulb will require more water and will require even more water when the leaves and the flower stem grow. Regularly add some liquid plant food when watering, (using quarter strength to what's indicated on the packet). Stand the flowering bulb in a cooler spot and the flowers will stay looking look nicer for longer.
Hippeastrum produces such lovely shaped flowers in a beautiful colour. A hippeastrum in bloom adds a splash of colour to the home. Lovely as a cut flower in the vase or used in an arrangement.
Hippeastrum is perhaps better known as amaryllis. Hippeastrum is a South American plant that is classified under Amaryllidaceae (or Liliaceae). Amaryllis is the old name, accidentally given to this plant by Linnaeus. That name is still used for comparable species originally from South Africa that are classified as Hippeastrum in botanic circles.
