Choose Right Container


A pot about 6-8 inches deep and 4-5 inches broad is enough. To boost the look of its flowers, use elegant ceramic pots! Glass vases and mason jars are also fantastic options! Simply make sure that they are at least 2-3 inches broader than the bulb. Also, remember that containers with drainage holes are preferable, as the amaryllis bulb rots in wet conditions.

The Bulbs


The amaryllis plant produces two stems from a single bulb, each with four blooms. If you want to have big flowers, got the biggest bulb you can find! You may purchase them online or at a local garden shop or nursery.



Plant amaryllis at any time between October and April. Before planting, immerse the bulb in lukewarm water. 3-5 hours would be enough! Fill the pot with compost-rich soil mix and carefully place the bulb in it. Make sure you don't damage any of it in the process.

Pack soil lightly around the bulb, covering it up to its neck but not above. Maintain soil moisture by watering on a regular basis. Do not allow the soil to dry out entirely. Keep the pot in a location that receives both indirect and direct sunlight.

Requirements for Growing Amaryllis Indoors



Place the pot in an area that receives both direct and indirect sunlight. A window with all-day indirect light and a few hours of gentle morning sun will be an excellent choice, as amaryllis thrives in partial sun.


Create a light soil mix with two parts loam and one part rotten old manure to avoid damp and soggy conditions. To get the ideal balance of well-drained soil, combine one part sand, one part compost, and one part loam.


Water your indoor amaryllis plant when the top soil is dry. To find out the moisture level in the growth media, use your finger or a moisture meter. Do not let the plant stand in water, as wet soil pushes root rot and attract pests.

Plant Care



You can fertilize the plant every 3-4 weeks with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Do follow the label's instructions. You may also use a flower booster fertilizer. 


When the bulbs begin to outgrow the pot, you will need to repot them. The ideal period is when the plant is dormant. Choose a container that is at least 3 to 4 inches wider than the bulb. Plant only two-thirds of the bulb in the soil.

Pruning & Deadheading

After flowering, use gardening shears or scissors to remove the old flowers off the stalk. Also, trim the drooping stems to the top of the bulb.

Pest & Disease

Checking the bulbs carefully when buying may lessen the chance of infection. Red blotches can have an impact on both health and looks.

Cut Amaryllis Flowers


- Use a sharp knife to cut the flowers at a 45-degree angle. Place the stalk upside down, then fill the hollow stems with water. Cover the opening with cotton.

- Get a clean vase, fill it with water, and add the flowers. You may also put cut-flower food in there.

- Change the water in the stem and vase every 2-3 days.

- With careful care, the flowers can stay for 7-10 days.
