The Q&A Archives: Frozen Amaryllis Bulb

Question: I bought 2 boxed amaryllis bulbs last night and forgot about them when I got home. They stayed in my car all night and the temperature was around 32 degrees all night. I potted them up but they were awfully cold. Am I wasting my time?

Answer: I don't think you're wasting your time. What have you got to lose? If it's been frozen you'll lose it, if'll be rewarded with a gorgeous plant. You should know in a week or so if they are going to grow or not. If no signs of life at that point and hte bulb starts to get mushy and soft, toss it.<br>
