Hey there, @WillC
-- care to speculate on this? I have an amaryllis that just came out of dormancy - Royal Velvet -- AFTER 18 MONTHS. I kept thinking it must be dead, but the bulb remained firm, so I did not throw it away. And then suddenly this fall it started leafing out again. Looks healthy, not going to flower though. I bought the bulb online, it shipped from Iran. When it arrived, I saw there was no agriculture certificate with it, and also that there was soil still attached to the roots. A bit mortified, I gave the bulb a bleach water scrubbing to remove/kill any foreign organisms/bugs on it and then planted it in a pot. It did leaf out and grow, but did not bloom (not unexpected as the bulb was much smaller than I expected - actually it was a cluster of 4 small bulbs instead of the 1 big bulb I ordered). Then it went dormant for 18 months. Care to speculate on why??
