I bought 3 huge bulbs of Hippeastrum Temptation before Christmas and planted them up straight away. It wasn’t long before they showed signs of growing, much to my delight.
Soon all 3 were pushing up sturdy flower stems, 2 of them pushing up 2 stems each.
They have now grown to about three feet tall and the second stems aren’t quite as tall yet.
I am well pleased with my new Hippeastrum bulbs, I must remember to water and fertilize them through the summer , then hopefully I’ll get another display next year. I have some other bulbs but obviously didn’t fertilize enough last year as they just have lots of leaves and no flower spikes, although I might be worrying too soon as they never flower as early second time around, I will have to wait and see. Are you able to keep your Hippeastrum bulbs going from year to year?
