These bulbs are usually sold as a kit with everything needed to grow the plant to flower. When potting the bulb up, leave about 1/3 of the bulb above the soil level. This is generally how they grow in the wild.

Place the bulb in a location where it will receive some direct sunlight. No fertilizer is needed until after the plant has flowered. It will need to be watered as often as it dries out. This is another plant that does not like to have constantly wet roots. Water as often as the soil dries. As the leaves get longer the plant will need to be watered more frequently.

It will take about 3 to 6 weeks for the flowers to appear. If you picked up an amaryllis during black Friday, plant it soon if you haven’t already and hopefully it will bloom before the first of the year. There is nothing like a flower in bloom for the first of the year.
