How do I plant the amarylis bulb in a pot?

This amaryllis bulb is supplied as a 'dry' bulb. That means: without nursery pot or soil.  Plant the Hippeastrum in the flowerpot with the soil supplied.

Cover the bottom of the flowerpot with a layer of potting soil. Fill the flowerpot with potting compost and make sure the amaryllis bulb protrudes about 1/3 above the ground. Lightly press the bulb into the soil and place the bulb in a sunny and warm place. Give a little water immediately, but make sure that the bulb does not get wet.

How do I take care of the amaryllis bulb?

The amaryllis blossoms easily. Water it a little in the beginning. When the bulb starts to grow, you can give more water with  plant food occasionally. Cut away the faded flowers.
 

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.
