Hippeastrum 'Red Garden' bulbs are quite easy to grow indoors. If they can not be planted immediately after receiving them store in a cool place. Plant in the wicker basket or in a flower pot filled with fresh potting medium. Put a layer of potsherd or hydro granules at the bottom of the pot. Cover with the moss. Approximately one third of the bulb may protrude above the soil. Water well and place in full daylight and enjoy the wonderful wealth of flowers. Every few days turn the basket or the pot so that the plant gets equal amount of daylight.
Place the Hippeastrum ‘Red Garden' bulbs directly in a bright, warm place. Water in small amounts at first, then water more often as you see the leaves and buds growing. At this stage, you should add plant food regularly when watering. During the flowering period place the pot away from direct sunlight, they will then remain beautiful for a longer time. After the flowering period cut the flowers off and the stem can be removed when it begins to wilt.
Keeping Hippeastrum through the winter
Keep watering and feeding your Hippeastrum 'Red Garden', even after the flowering period so that the bulbs can store sufficient food. Stop watering in September as round about this time the leaves start to die. Keep the bulbs in a cool, dark place and repot in December to encourage growth once again.
Hippeastrum ‘Red Garden' has small deep red flowers. Each bulb produces multiple stems with a large number of flowers. Each stem almost looks like a bunch of flowers. The perfectly shaped flowers are very eye-catching and look magnificent in a vase or in a flower arrangement. Hippeastrum is still known under its old name, Amaryllis.
