I purchased an amaryllis for Christmas this year and wanted to get it planted right away so we could enjoy over the holidays.
The first step to planting began with this simple ceramic pot because it already had dirt inside which made my life a little easier. It works great for indoors which led me right into planting.
All we need to establish an amaryllis indoors is a bulb, plastic dish, dirt and a container for planting.
Let’s Begin the Process
Once you have your supplies gathered we can move forward pretty fast because this is so easy.
In my situation I’m going to dump half of the soil from the white planter into a plastic dish. Once removed place the bulb into the center of the ceramic pot.
Securing the Bulb
Once you have the bulb in position the next step is to secure so it’s stable. Remember amaryllis grow tall and have this tendency to tilt because their bloom can be heavy so make sure it’s upright.
I used dirt to establish this bulb but you could also uses marbles, rocks, or small pebbles. Sand in a glass container would look really neat too and contemporary.
Just remember once the bulb is properly situated cover the up to the base of the planter.
Wasn’t that just super easy?
Now make sure to clean debris from the container and find a neat place to display your Amaryllis indoors. If you place in a sunny warm area it will grow faster and hopefully bloom earlier instead of later.
Also remember to water each week because these pretty plants like moist soil.
