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

The name Amaryllis actually came about due to a mistake by Swedish botanist Linnaeus. This was apparently because the buds of the flower resemble horse ears. In 1800, botanist Herbert discovered that the flower bulb did not belong to the Amaryllis species. That is why he came up with the new species name Hippeastrum, which is the name in Greek for “knight’s star”. However, the flower itself is still called Amaryllis.
