Forcing Amaryllis In Water - Knowledgebase Question

Question by jcombite

What is the method of forcing amaryllis bulbs in water? I have my tall
cylinder vase, marbles or polished river stones, and the bulb. I think
I should use distilled water, but I'm worried about the base of the bulb
rotting. What should the water depth be? Is the bloom time the same as
in dirt (@ 6 weeks)? I want to give them as gift plants and need to
include directions. I saw them at Smith and Hawkins last year in St.
Paul and they were GORGEOUS! Thanks.
