Amaryllis growth spurt

by Caroline Brown

Well, the hoped-for growth spurt did happen. Since less than two weeks ago when I last blogged about my amaryllis, both stems have far more than doubled in size. It’s interesting to see how the plant uses its energy…first to develop the buds, next the stem growth, next will come the leaves. Looks like it will be a “lusty giant,” as promised by the grower, after all.

By the way, I turn the pot every day. Even so, the stem leans toward the window as much as you see in the picture every single day!
