In this blog post I am sharing with you what I personally did with my 3 wax covered amaryllis bulbs I received over a year ago for my birthday. They had to be some of the most beautiful blooms to enjoy during the Christmas season. Scroll down to see video and a few images of what to expect after the bloom is complete.
Wax Covered Amaryllis Bulbs
Honestly, I wasn’t super excited about getting these for my December birthday about 14 months ago. The wax bulb kind of freaked me out… but as they plant started to grow with basically NO watering in my cool dining room I was super impressed.
Now that the plant is done blooming … what to do? Well… I took it out to my dome greenhouse where it could take a rest in a cool – dry spot. Check out the video to see what I did!

More About Wax Amaryllis Bulbs
Over the past years I have grown many different forced bulbs like the amaryllis. It is exciting to think of all the different varieties that are on the market today.
When considering adding one of these to your houseplants or home garden be sure to remember it is worth the investment. Some of the new varieties are to die for! Below are some of the photos I took during this season. I hope they inspire you to grow some of your own.
There are endless ways to enjoy the Amaryllis plant indoors. Below are a few of my favorite. WIN WIN mixing with spider plant for different texture and and green full time as you want for the bloom.
You will have to stop back later in the season to see if I get a bloom from these bulbs. The final note is that they did survive and the bulb looks super healthy.
In conclusion to checking out my blog post with images and video I would be honored to have you comment below. Tell me what you think of the wax amaryllis if you have grown them. Secondly, be sure to tell me what you did with the wax bulbs once they were done in the first year.
