I got one as a Christmas gift. I think the wax holds in moisture and keeps it alive without a pot. Mine put up three flower spikes, and a total of 11 flowers. And i think the color of the wax is the color of the flowers.
@columbiariver Laura girls got me one last Xmas. It re-blooms! I took wax off ours & put in ground, it bloomed again in March! Don't throw it like most do & think it won't rebloom bc it absolutely will! Or plant in a pot
Saw a video on these and they flowered beautifully the first time then the girl on the video removed the wax for the next blooming. It came off easily for her and it flowered again the next season. She also said her friend put it in her garden and it flowered in spring. Like Maggie did. 👍😍
Thanks for your advice Ruth, Terry, Shelley, Jackie, Maggie and Diane. I guess I don't get out much, never seen them. The new growth is finally visible tho. I'm not throwing anything away. I've been trying to grow amaryllis from seed. So I'm going to let these bloom! and then remove wax. Then I'll plant them. 💚💚💚💚💚💚 @sushiwaitress @moore.794 @ShelleySnyder @jmlincoln @dirtgirlworld @hkyfvr
@columbiariver Hanna & I planted amaryllis seeds 2 yrs ago that came up this yr, takes a while, have to plant seeds ASAP after collecting & place in shady area & keep moist till it sprouts. We use soil you can buy just for seedlings from Wal-Mart,it's well draining & thin,easy for sprout to pop 🙌🤞
🤦🏼♂️ they seem to be the next trend (after the succulents painted in glitter trend) - personally don’t see why this is necessary other than convenience and it doesn’t do them any good in the long term. I’d peel off the wax 👍🏼
Well, there you go. These seeds are a few years old. A gtags friend sent them. When I got them was a year I had so many seeds I couldn't keep up. I'm keeping up and going back into older stuff now. I was prepared to wait for them to germinate. I'm going to sow something else in the soil now. Give Hanna a curtsey from me. She is my favorite gtags teacher 💙 @dirtgirlworld
Thank you! I'm going to try to find the tag. It came in the mail in january and was frozen, pot was broken. I repotted and kept it warm. And she bloomed! Wonky stem, but who cares!? @cyndi @pelly @gjones @ShelleySnyder @alysha @jeatacake @carolgs
