Since being given the "hide under a brown paper bag" treatment both of mine now have flower spikes - one is last year's Lidl bulb, the other is this year's. My two grandsons each had a red one - one has produced two enormous red spikes, the other only one. My third grandson had a pink one, also from Lidl, and his bloomed at the beginning of January - shorter stem but beautiful flower. The lesson to be learned, perhaps, is that each bulb is an individual and soem are more b****minded than others!
There's a lot about amaryllis care in the GW magazine online.
