It flopped over


I am reposting this picture from January 28th, so you can compare the growth in 10 days.


I took this picture today and I had to move the plant near the wall because it had fallen over. I decided it would need something to lean against. It’s like it is on steroids! I don’t think it will be long until it blooms. I think it is amazing, how fast it grew. The ladies in the picture are my grandmother and great grandmother.



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.
