In this post, I share a video on How to Plant an Amaryllis Bulb in Soil. I have had great success for many years with this planting method found on this page.
How to Plant an Amaryllis Bulb in Soil Video
In this video, I demonstrate how I plant my Amaryllis in containers with soil. I hope you will comment on this post and reach out to me on my YouTube Page for more information. This is the way I enjoy Amaryllis blooms for a few months during the winter season. This video features the Nymph Amaryllis variety.
Tips on Planting
Below are a few of the tips I want to highlight from the video on this post. If you are not sure about what I have shared please connect with me on this post.
- Pick a clean container that has a drainage hole at the bottom. The container doesn’t need to be super deep. I like using a short 3-5″ tall container for my Amaryllis bulbs.
- A short layer of drainage rocks can be added to the container but as long as you have a soil that drains well this is not needed.
- Prune away some of the roots before planting the bulb.
- When adding the bulb to the soil it doesn’t have to be submerged completely. Be sure to leave about 2-3″ of the bulb top ( shoulder area) showing as directed in the video.
- Once the bulb is in place you can add some moss around the top of the soil for decoration and to prevent the soil from drying to quickly.
- Water well – I use indoor plant food on my newly planted bulbs.
