|Do amaryllis bulbs come back every year indoors?
|Amaryllis is a perennial bulb and will bloom for many years if given proper care which includes a resting period. Here's how: After flowering, cut off the stalk but allow the leaves to remain. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy. In the sprng place the pot outdoors in a shady place. In late summer, when the leaves turn yellow and die, stop watering, bring the plant indoors, and allow it to rest in a cool, dry place for about three months. Around the first of December, repot and bring it into a bright room. Begin watering again and a new flower stalk and new leaves should emerge from the bulb. When the weather warms in the spring, take it outdoors again to repeat the process.|
