@jeatacake me either 😜 completely threw it off balance though and a few flowers were crushed in the fall 😩

Oh no & not exactly easy to secure it to a cane or something similar. At least you saw it at its best. It'll be interesting to see if it can do it again (5 flowers) next time 🤔

It is a bit hit & miss with reflowering, but mine will more often than not, despite my neglect of them! ☺

@jeatacake sounds like you have the knack with them! I’ll have to try the neglect route 😉😂

Mine hasn’t come out at all this year, maybe because I left it outside all summer..🤭 and I loved it..

Wow! I had this one last year and I bought it again this year. I think it's my favourite ones.

@hkyfvr I knew you’d add to your collection 😛 they’re so beautiful, I can’t blame you 😁 I look forward to seeing yours in all their glory ❤️💗

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom a shame when you wait all year for it to flower again and it doesn’t 😠 they’re one of those fussy plants I think, needing dark & light periods 🤔

They say Christmas gets earlier every year. I think your amaryllis thinks the same! 😁👍🎅

@jeatacake @gjones @columbiariver thank you all 😛 you forget how fast these things grow! In a week it’s gone from a stump to almost open 😜 the other one is barely a few inches high 🤷🏻‍♀️

Wow. That is really growing fast. Mine has just started showing leaves and the other is still resting. Can’t wait to see the flower. Apple Blossom is so pretty. 💗🤍

@hkyfvr are yours the ones you had outdoors through summer?

hkyfvr

The one that has just started is a new red one. The one from outside is still in its rest phase downstairs for a few more weeks. Then I will bring it up and see if it will flower again. 🤞🤞🤞

@hkyfvr never hurts to add a new one 😋 I guess the older one will need a bit longer to get going but exciting to see how it does ☺️

comment
hkyfvr

Was worried the other one would not bloom again so I got a spare. Had a pink one in my cart last week but I changed my mind. Too many for such a tall plant. 🤷‍♀️😍

@hkyfvr a back up is necessary 😛 I am shocked how expensive they are given they don’t even flower for long 🙈

comment
hkyfvr

I got mine for ten dollars but I have seen some with more blooms for a lot more. I got so much joy from mine last year. I definitely posted it way too much. 🙀😂😂

@hkyfvr I suppose they’re like spring bulbs, can buy better sized ones that will be more expensive but flower better (apparently 🤔😂) they deserve to be posted lots. The flowers really are spectacular 😍
