Only two flowers this year but did have a weird growth spurt last June so perhaps tired itself out 🙄🌸

Last years coming to life again along with some strange seedling..... I put this out in the garden in the pot for a few weeks in the summer as suddenly produced leaves seed must have hit in then😳 #amaryllis

Mine is growing leaves now. 👍🏼 It finished flowering last month and it now growing leaves. It's ok to d that now. It's up to you if you force dormancy later in the year. I don't bother. 😊

Oh clever elastic band! Mine came out ages ago, flopped over and had to be cut. Now I just have two leaves in a pot, to go with my collection of non-flowering orchids... 😂😂
