Her flowers are slowly beginning to fade but the remaining ones are still looking fabulous and I love the green stripes on the reverse 😍💚😍 #amaryllis #amaryllis-marilyn #hippeastrum #hippeastrum-marilyn #cream #doubleflowers #houseplant #exotic 💚

She is, Celina, but with five massive double flowers it was impossible to really appreciate them. Now there are only three blooms left so photographing them is easier! @cee 😘

She’s opened up just in time for #bestoffebruary 🥰 There’s still one more bud to come but I’m not sure where it will find the room to unfurl! #amaryllis #amaryllis-marilyn #bulb #hippeastrum #hippeastrum-marilyn #cream #doubleflowers 💚

This is my #wednesdaywonder ❤️ ‘Marilyn’ has two stems, one with three buds and one with two buds. This is the first flower to open on the three-bud stem and she’s a whopper! If all five buds unfurl at more or less the same time this is going to be one magnificent #amaryllis ❤️ #hippeastrum #hippeastrum-marilyn #bulb #exotic #doubleflowered #cream 💚

One on its own is beautiful but when they all flower it will be a incredible Barbara. Do post another photo when they all bloom 😍

Looks beautiful 😍. Just keep an eye on it to make sure it's not top heavy and likely to topple over, as that happened to one of mine last year! It may need some support if all those blooms flower at once 🙂

I saw a post the other day where someone had popped the pot in a tall glass vase which keeps the blooms upright. Worth a go to save having to support them 😄

Celina @cee posted a photo of hers growing in a tall vase, Hayley. Mine is already growing in a pot and I’m not sure I’d be able to find a tall vase that would fit it 😢 but it’s a great idea 👍 @hayleyaj 😘
