I potted my Amaryllis Benfica on November 23rd, about 6 weeks ago. Here’s what it looks like–two stems, the tallest being about 5 inches, and several leaves. According to the grower, it’s supposed to bloom approximately 8-10 weeks after planting and will be around 2 feet tall. I hope it’s not going to be stunted…it must be getting ready to go through a growth spurt. It’s in a south-facing window getting as much sun as it possible can here in mostly-cloudy New England.
Amaryllis update–halfway there?
