Amaryllis

For my birthday in December my sister in law, Ellen, gave me this Amaryllis bulb to grow. I had always looked at these but never picked one up and I am really looking forward to having this bloom.

Here I am showing this very compressed peat moss that I had to add two cups of water to. Once it soaked up the water it filled up the pot. It was so full I had to take some out to get the bulb in and then pack it back around the bulb.

The directions say in May I will be able to plant this in the ground and then take it out again in September. It also says it will bloom in 8 to 10 weeks. I will keep you updated.
