Answer: You can certainly rest them out of the soil; many of the amaryllis bulbs we purchase are treated that way for shipping. Allow the leaves to wither and then trim them off neatly. Set the bulbs in a cool, dark area (about 45 to 50 degrees) for about two months, then repot them. Pot the bulbs very high, so that half to a third of the bulb is above the soil. Water lightly once, set them in a bright location, and keep the soil only barely moist until they begin to root and grow again.
