It all started on November 1st 2016 when I woke up the roots of my white amaryllis Alfresco by putting its roots over water in a jar. That takes minimum 24 hours. I kept it there for around 48 hours.
I then planted the white amaryllis Alfresco in its own pot with earth and gave it some water. Not too much water, just a little to make the earth moist.
Then you wait and don’t give it any water at all until it starts to grow. It already had a small green top when I bought the bulb.
I placed the pot in the livingroom and waited for further development.
On November 17th it had started to grow and I dug out the amaryllis support from storage to have it ready for when the stem would go up. When it starts to grow, it grows really fast.
Below is its further development until today. It grows real fast when it starts growing. In the end it got four (4) stems. Each stem got at least 3-4 buds. It is a very beautiful amaryllis. This is the third year that I am growing this particular white amaryllis.
