It has another bud opening on it- so I just might paint it again! When it fades, I'm going to try to get it to bloom again next year.
Allowing Your Amaryllis to Re-bloom Naturally
- To allow your Amaryllis to re-bloom naturally, cut off the flower stalk after blooming ceases, but let the foliage continue to grow as long as it can. Keep it in bright light, indoors or out.
- Keep watered so the soil is moist, but not wet.
- Stop feeding in August.
- Bring indoors before frost and place in a cool spot in indirect, bright light.
- The leaves will start to yellow and drop around December. Keep watering as usual and new flowers stalks should appear in a month or two. Resume feeding at this time and move the plant to a warm, sunny spot. Leaves will follow shortly and then blooms.
- When the flowers fade, start the process over. Allowing the plant to bloom naturally will result in larger plants and flowers.
