Taylors Red Velvet Amaryllis Gift Pack 1 Bulb
This stunning Amaryllis Red Velvet is one of the easiest and most spectacular flowering plants. It makes a superb gift for any indoor plant lover and produces large, flamboyant blooms. Flowering from winter to spring, it is sometimes grown as a Christmas gift. Growing this plant is very rewarding as it is easy to plant and, with a little care, it can be encouraged to bloom again. It can be planted between October and January and will generally flower within six to ten weeks of planting.
Flowering period: Late winter/early spring
Bulb size: 26-28cm
Use the compost supplied and plant the bulb so that about a third remains above the compost surface. Water the compost lightly from the top and place in a warm, bright and draught-free position at a temperature of about 20C. Water sparingly as the amaryllis bulb starts to grow, keeping the compost moist. Turn the pot regularly to prevent the flower stem bending towards the light. As soon as the flowers start to open, move it to a cooler position to prolong the flowering period.
