Quick tips for potting up amaryllis bulbs



Potting up amaryllis bulbs for indoor blooms can brighten up a room in the cold season. In the video below I share the tips for planting up these large flowering bulbs, but here are some quick tips to get you started:

  • Make sure the bulb you are purchasing is firm, not soft.
  • Use a sturdy, heavy pot to plant your bulb in. Plants can get top heavy, so this helps prevent them from tipping over.
  • Leave the "shoulders" of your bulb exposed when planting. 
  • Give a little bit of water and set in a warm spot to get growing. 
You can also watch the video tutorial below.
