Amaryllis is such a beautiful plant I wanted to put it in an honored and bright spot. However I was not lucky. There is not really a good sunny spot in my house for potted plants. I don’t know if the stem needed more sun for strength, but this amaryllis broke off at the bottom of its stem. It had not yet shown the buds, but I put the stem in this vase and waited to see if I would get a bloom. Time passed and you can see that there are at least three big buds looking healthy.
It only took a week for the amaryllis to come into full bloom – or almost full bloom. You cannot see that there is a late blooming fifth flower, coming along slowly.
Another week passes and the blossoms die – but look at those large seed cases!
It is amazing to open up a seed case and see how many seeds exist – and can be used – slowly.
I have had a good time watching these beautiful flowers open – and die. Have you salvaged any Christmas flowers recently, and learned more about the plant?
