Cherry Nymph Amaryllis with bright, cherry red flowers. The fantastic colored flowers are large with a lovely shape. Looking as it does it definitely deserves a place of honor in your home.
It needs very little watering. It can take 6-8 weeks for them to bloom.
Your amaryllis bulbs will bloom again and again, provided they are properly cared for. After the bulb finishes blooming, cut off the flower stalk close to the base. Keep the plant moist and add house plant fertilizer. Stop watering in August, and allow the plant to dry out completely in the sun. In early fall, remove and clean the bulbs of old scales and dead foliage. Roots should be fleshy and not damaged. You can re-pot when you are ready to restart the process.
