#3: Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Red Lion')
says, "This was my first Amaryllis. After its initial bloom it thrived in my living room window and outgrew its pot. I was very surprised to see how large the bulb had grown in 8 months. I hope it will bloom again in December."
added, "Last year was my first introduction to growing Amaryllis, the cultivar was Red Lion, and I fell in love with its striking red blooms on the one scape it produced. I let it grow in a sunny window all summer. In early September I let it go dormant and put it in a cool dark cupboard for about 8 weeks, then potted it up in fresh soil. It bloomed beautifully. It was bigger and better than ever with two sturdy scapes, each of which produced four large and gorgeous long lasting blooms."
