Treated well, amaryllis blooms again (01/16/05)
'Tis the season to debunk myths. No, I'm not going to challenge your belief in Santa Claus. But I am going to call into question the way people grow amaryllis. OK, so you brought home your fat amaryllis bulb, or it arrived in the mail, some weeks ago. If that bulb was out of soil, it should have at least had some fleshy roots still attached. Without those roots, the flower bud seated deep within the bulb will either never appear or else make a poor showing...
