In this post, I share how I store Amaryllis bulbs to force bloom them for years to come. This process has worked for me as long as you follow the steps carefully. Be sure to check out the video below and leave a comment with questions.
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.

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.
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.
