  • Easy to plant and grow
  • Long-lasting, colorful flowers
  • For longest-lasting blooms, keep plant away from heat and direct sunlight
  • Hardy in zones 9-10 if planted outdoors; anywhere when planted indoors, height: 18 in. to 20 in., guaranteed to grow
  • Planting tip: if you wish to re-bloom the amaryllis in the fall, stop watering in August and place the bulb, still in the pot, in a cool, dry place for 10 to 12 weeks, in mid-November, remove the bulb from the old pot; remove dead foliage and old roots, but leave clean, healthy roots intact, repot in fresh soil as indicated above in a pot only slightly larger than the bulb, if properly cared for, the bulb should bloom in 8 to 10 weeks
  • Growing instructions: select a pot that is approximately 1/2 in. in diameter larger than the bulb, fill the pot approximately half full with a good quality, sterilized potting soil that drains well, place the bulb into the pot and continue adding soil, leaving the top 1/3 of the bulb exposed, be sure there is at least 1/2 in. of space between the soil and the top rim of the pot for watering, water thoroughly with lukewarm water immediately after potting, keep the soil moist but not wet, and avoid getting water directly onto the bulb stem, place the pot in a warm room that is well-lit; a south-facing window is best, do not overwater once the shoots begin to appear, when flowers begin to bloom, move the pot to a slightly cooler spot where it receives indirect lighting, after the flowers fade, cut the stem off leaving approximately 3 in. above the top of the bulb, do not remove or cut off the leaves, treat the plant as you would any indoor plant, watering it lightly and regularly

22 cm to 24 cm Economy Red Lion Amaryllis Bulb (12-Pack) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I love these beautiful Amaryllis plants and have added a few each year to my yard where I have substantial plantings . Saw these bulk on sale and thought I would try them. I can say the bulb quality was just as good as the "kit" ones available this year. The bulbs are not the mammoth size, but I can tell you the do produce flowers the first year and if you are fortunate enough to live in the south where they can stay as plantings all year the bulbs will grow to some 5-6 inches and produce multiple stems and lovely leaves. Then they split and you get MORE BULBS!!!! For just a few dollars a bulb it is well worth the price. I first plant these in pots to enjoy indoors and then transplant into my yard. Very Happy with these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from waste of money Although I ordered these bulbs on sale, I still very reasonably expect a quality product from Home Depot. The bulbs arrived 6 per a paper bag, with 4 paper bags stuffed in to a cardboard box. All but TWO of the 24 bulbs I have ordered are rotten. One of the paper bags was actually dripping liquid from the rotten bulbs. I threw those in the trash immediately--- all were in some state of advanced rot. The remainder of the bulbs varied from a generally soft mush to having multiple deep black spots. I have attempted to peel off the most obviously rotten layers and let them air dry to see if they firm up, but no success. I am afraid to plant them for fear of introducing rot and fungus to my flower beds. Only two bulbs of the entire group feel firm and look healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price on bulbs! This was a great price on bulbs, they shipped in a bulk box ready to plant. Much cheaper than buying the single kits with the planters that I didn't need. Amaryllis grow very well in my area and don't have to be dug up unless you want to replant somewhere else. They bloom in spring and fall and provide beautiful foliage for most of the year except after a freeze but will come back in full force in the spring. Amaryllis bulbs also reproduce, several years ago my mom gave me a gift kit with one bulb that produces beautiful white blooms and it has reproduced many times over. I added some photos of the blooms, all of these blooms came originally from a single bulb that has reproduced and planted in both pots and in my yard The pot with the multiple blooms was planted with 3 bulbs about 6 years ago and now has about 12 bulbs blooming, each bulb produces at least one stalk that has 3-4 blooms on it.. Now I am adding red to my yard to attract hummingbirds. Just make sure that you plant them with the top one third of the bulb exposed above the soil. If you plant outside, make sure the bulb is protected from frost, just cover with mulch or leaves until spring. Happy Planting!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from half of the bulbs were mushy and soft as though they had froze. Won't purchase these again. Very sad that they arrived mushy and soft instead of firm like normal bulbs.
