I bought an amaryllis that has a bloom starting. I was sitting outside when I bought it. Can I set it indoors now? Thank you

Hi SherryHenley, Welcome!
Yes indeed, you can sit your Amaryllis in a sunny window to enjoy the lovely blooms! Amaryllis are very popular plants at this time of year! Many purchase bulbs to force into bloom over the holiday season while others in warm cllimates are able to grow them outdoors in their garden year round! They have very beautiful blooms, you can view quite a few here in our database: http://garden.org/plants/brows...

Hi Sherry......I grow them here in pots in a large east facing sunny window and move them out side in early summer. Then in the fall I quit watering and let the foliage yellow. Then I cut the foliage off and put the pots in a room in my basement for a couple of months. Then as they start to show growth I start the process over again. Will be adding pictures as they bloom. La Pas should be open in a few days.......... Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

I do it exactly like Paul does, works well, lasts a long time!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
