A: Hello Kathy - Could you send us a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thank you - National Plant Network
A: The wax that surrounds the bulb acts as a base. It is flat on the bottom so it stands up on its own.
A: Yes, it's just the pooled wax that spreads out and makes a flat base.
A: Hello PJ - They do have a wax base like the photo. They do stand on their own with that base. Thank you - National Plant Network
A: Yes it’s wax
A: Yes per my instructions
A: Yes. The other buds will start growing then. I put a drop of water in every once in awhile. My first bloom had 5flowers. Beautiful. Now the other one is growing. I love this gift I got. Will look into them again.
A: Yes, cutting the stalk off after it is done blooming will redirect energy to the other stalks to grow and bloom.
A: I do, it keeps things neat.
A: I plant mine outside in early spring in a southern protected area (zone 7b)and they rebloom the next spring. I would remove the wax coating before planting.
A: you can plant it outside...just peel the wax off
A: These are giant amaryllis bulbs dipped in wax. For a bulb not dipped in wax they can be planted after they bloom and will continue to grow. With these, there is no guarantee that they will. If you want to try you will have to remove all the wax coating before planting them. We do not guarantee that they will grow once you take them out of the wax and plant them.
A: In the past I have been able to remove the wax & trim back the bulb a little & successfully plant it… But these three are dead as a door mail!
A: I got 2 blooms to start with; there were 2 more emerging. I cut off the first 2 as suggested when they started dying....now the last 2 blooms are dying and no sign of any more starting. Disappointed.
A: No. Inside only. but will grow more Buds, after these are done.lI got mine at Christmas so haven’t gotten that far yet. But my instructions say so
A: My instructions say no inside only
A: Beautiful blooms and so easy!
A: They will not rebloom. The roots are cut off before dipping them in wax. It basically is a dying plant.
