In October last year I chopped down my Amaryllis, wrapped it up and put it to sleep.
Just after Christmas I started checking up on it to see if it was pushing up yet. Nothing… About a month ago I started to get a little concerned that it still wasn’t showing any signs.
So… fast forward to yesterday and I got fed up of waiting and got them out of the outhouse and brought them into the house.
I spent about 5 mins getting rid of the old, dead layers of skin around the neck, but I could still see no growth. The bulb is firm, other than those few loose layers, and there is no bad smells. Because of this I’m hoping that they are fine, just slow to get going this year.
I now have them in my room with a good drink. With luck the presence of the moisture in the soil will give it a kick and start it moving.
Anyone else got any Amaryllis, are yours pushing up yet? Please don’t tell me I am the only one!
