My mother-in-law gave me an amaryllis bulb when she visited at Christmas. It's still in a paper bag... I've no idea what colour it will be so am slightly reluctant to do anything with it! When did you plant yours?
I planted mine just after Christmas so this is a month's growth. I was very enthused by Sarah Raven's instructions and was expecting to nurture it all summer and have repeat flowering next year. In my dreams!
Sarah Raven's indoor Narcissi have been a massive let down this year. Three flowers and the rest of the bulbs in a state of arrested development with about two inches of growth.
I am afraid that the fault was mine in this case - I am too embarrassed to admit how long I thought about taking it out of the box before I actually did.
I think you might need an excel spreadsheet to chart the growth.
The growth is so slow that it would be a flat line unless the vertical axis is in μm.
I have rescued mine from my garage and put some water in the pot, I think it should take about 8 weeks to flower (if I have remembered aright from the box).
In that case there is going to be record breaking growth in the next four weeks.
Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
