Unique amaryllis

The amaryllis 'Papilio' is a unique flower bulb. This amaryllis reveals no less than 4-5 red-striped green flowers on 2 stems. It’s a remarkable colour combination. Place the 'Papilio' in a beautiful vase or pot, or keep it as a ‘dry bulb’. The 'Papilio' will also flower without water or soil. The amaryllis bulb is pretty as a picture, even before it blooms. The first flowers appear in 6-8 weeks. If the stem is 10-15 cm in length, regularly water the amaryllis in a pot. In a glass container, the same water level must always be maintained for the amaryllis. Do not water the dry bulb. It only needs it once it is received. After that, spray the dry bulb with water every once in a while. The amaryllis is a true tropical sun lover. Place the bulb in half or full sun, in a warm location where it is always between 15-25 degrees Celsius. Order this exquisite amaryllis today!

Hippeastrum ‘Papilio’ is very easy to bring into flower indoors. Choose a sturdy pot and cover the bottom of the pot with a layer of pot shards or hydro pellets. The bulb should be planted in fresh potting compost. Approximately one third of the large bulb should protrude above the soil level. Place the Hippeastrum ‘Papilio’ bulb immediately in a warm spot in full sun. Water immediately but do avoid watering on the bulb. Every few days turn the pot so that the plant gets equal amount of daylight.
Care+
A minimum amount of water is required until you see signs of growth, then you can water more also adding 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.   Did you know that this beautifully coloured amaryllis comes into its own in a sheltered spot in the garden too? Do remember to lift the bulb and bring indoors well before the first frosts as it is not hardy.
Specifics+
Hippeastrum 'Papilio' has lovely shaped blooms in a unique shade of green, marked with burgundy stripes that make the whole just a feast for the eye. They also make a terrific cut flower and look great in flower arrangements. Hippeastrum is also known by its 'old' name, amaryllis. Hippeastrum originated in South America and is categorised as Liliaceae, one of the Amayllidaceae. It was mistakenly named amaryllis by the botanist Linnaeus. Amaryllis is actually the name for a comparable variety from South Africa but the botanical genus is classified Hippeastrum.
