I planted five Amaryllis on 16 November. None of them was kept in the dark after planting. Three of them have three flower spikes, two of them are just starting to shoot and will also have three spikes each. Next time I grow them I will stand them in shallow water to soak them briefly before I plant them as I think damp soil is the trigger to start them off.
They are growing at a terrific rate.
I had hoped to have them flowering by the end of January; not sure if they will make it!
