I’d completely forgotten about this! I put it in one of the spare rooms upstairs to get more heat and light, and look at it now, I’m in love with the colour ❤️ #amaryllis #hippeastrum #hippeastrumroyalvelvet

I had to put two of mine upstairs Rachel, on the windowsill above the radiator - it’s warmer upstairs, and now I can’t stop them - took about a 10 days but they are really going some now. I think they just needed a good week or so at 20 degrees plus to wake them up! @rachelbrooks

This ones doing well though - Hippeastrum ‘Royal Velvet’, should hopefully be a lovely deep colour. Planted also 8 weeks ago #amaryllis #hippeastrum #hippeastrumroyalvelvet #bulb
