Show moreThis Hippeastrum selection is quite easy to grow indoors. If they can not be planted immediately after receiving them store in a cool place. Plant in a sturdy pot filled with fresh potting compost. Cover the bottom of the pot with a layer of pot shards or hydro granules. Approximately one third of the bulb should protrude above the soil. Water well and place in full daylight and enjoy the wonderful wealth of flowers. Avoid watering on the bulb. Every few days turn the pot so that the plant gets equal amount of daylight.
Show moreWater in small amounts at first and then as you see the leaves and buds growing you can water more often. At this stage, you should add plant food regularly when watering. During the flowering period place the pot away from direct sunlight, they will then remain beautiful for a longer time. After the flowering period cut the flowers off and the stem can be removed when it begins to wilt.
Keeping Hippeastrum through the winterContinue to water and feed your Hippeastrum even after the flowering period so that the bulbs can store sufficient food. Stop watering in September as round about this time the leaves start to die. Keep the bulbs in a cool, dark place and repot in December to encourage growth once again.
