I couldn’t believe what was going on in my sunroom where the Amaryllis grow this time of year. There is a mystery plant using the Nymph Amaryllis as a trellis. In this post I share a few unique images of the Tomato Plant Climbing My Amaryllis because we all need a smile.
Tomato Plant Climbing Amaryllis
How could this be you might ask. I first spotted the vine-like plant climbing the holiday bloom a week before this photo. The scent of tomato plant leaves are unmistakable. Simply rub the plant’s leaves to discover it was indeed a tomato.

Images From The Unlikely Pairing
No surprise that both are making a wonderful pair – companion plants that you don’t normally find together. The small tomato is so happy climbing the stiff stalk of the Amaryllis.
The Nymph Amaryllis
The Amaryllis bulb was started indoors 2 months ago. As it finishes off its last series of bloom I noticed the mystery vine. This variety of Amaryllis makes a great holiday bloom addition to most any home. I prefer to start mine later in the winter once the holidays are behind us. This is one of the varieties I have stored in the past and forced a bloom the following year. I share more about that on my website at: Forcing Amaryllis Bulbs Indoors.
How Could a Tomato Vine Climb a Amaryllis
Most likely the seed was hiding in the soil that I recycle. I do remember just grabbing from my bin of soil from last year’s stash in the garage. Whatever was closest to the house because it has been so cold outside. To start the Amaryllis bulb only a small amount of soil is needed. The seed must have been left from the firefly variety I grew last year. We will find out what variety as this plant continues to grow well after the amaryllis is done for the season.
