Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) is one of the top ten favourite house-plants . This size produces two stems carrying 3 to 5 blooms. Soak the roots and lower part of the bulb in tepid water for 24 hours. Once potted place near a radiator or fire until there is 4’’ of growth, then move it to a sunny position. Always water at the top of the pot with tepid water.
