                                        How To Get Indoor Amaryllis/Hippeastrum To Bloom

I have heard a lot of folks say that they cannot get their Amaryllis/Hippeastrum to bloom the second or third year, and I was very surprised to be told by a saleslady at a garden center that she was unsuccessful.

We used Amaryllis for Christmas gifts. Now that all of them are nearing the end of their blooming period, we're getting the question "how do I make it do it again?"

Thanks for the great info.

Thank You!
