How to Store Amaryllis Bulbs To Force Blooms

Preparing the bulbs for storage is pretty easy.  The hardest part of this process is actually keeping the bulb in a cool location that doesn’t dry it out.  The mulch I share in this post helps prevent the Amaryllis bulb from drying.   I hope you enjoy this video.

Thanks for watching the video and I hope you will subscribe to my YouTube page at BrenHaas Channel.  

What Works For Me

Be sure to store the bulbs in a cool location. I usually put mine in my office closet because it stays really cool and out of sun.   I would normally put the bulbs in my basement but this time of year I have my 100 plus Dahlia bulbs in storage there.

NOTE: One year I had a hard time finding brown paper lunch bags.  You can also use non-wax covered newspaper to store your bulbs. 

Be sure to label the bulb bag so you don’t forget when and what bulb is in the bag.

Let’s Connect

By following the packaging tips in the video above and making sure you remove the bulb with in the 10 weeks after storing you will have blooms for many years to come.  Please be sure to comment on this post to tell me if you have done this before.  I also encourage you to reach out to me on my contact page featured on this website.
