I love growing Amaryllis indoors. Papilio Butterfly Amaryllis is one of my favorites (although I like Amaryllis in general).

Do you grow them inside? If so, what are your favorites?

Very pretty!
I've done some regular Amaryllis. Staff where I work was so pleased to see one last year. I hope my current supply (4-5?) goes into my garden in a really good spot this summer and gets beefed up. Otherwise, I don't feed them enough and they dwindle and don't bloom well.

I have photos of other indoor Amaryllis blooming - if I can find them. I agree, it's so good to see them blooming in the dead of winter.

Welcome! Carol. I love your Butterfly Amaryllis. I'm supposed to get one in a trade this spring. Please do post your photos. We need some rays of sunshine during this dreary period of winter.

Hi Deborah. I'm hunting for them. That could take awhile. Rolling my eyes.

Hilarious! We can wait. We aren't going anywhere. At least I'm not. It's too cold out for me. Whistling

Last three bulbs from a bulk box. Somebody mixed them up but that's OK since it will give me a longer bloom time. Library where I work.

I love the Butterfly Amaryllis it is one I have wanted for a few yrs but have not purchased it yet. Maybe this year I will breakdown and buy that one. I have a lot of Amaryllis I have picked up on clearance but mine usually bloom in the spring when I put them outside for the summer.

That is a beautiful display Sally.

I still haven't found my other Amaryllis photos. I should stop looking because that's when I'll find them.
