I AM GLAD SURPRISES NEVER END
I bought this Amaryllis last year and enjoyed the blooms for many weeks, and when it had done flowering I left it alone during the winter months and started re-watering it come spring. All I got for the care it received, was a lot of healthy leaves, so I decided to sit the pot out in the flower garden. Soon I saw that the leaves had died so I assumed the plant was lost, then a couple of weeks ago, much to my surprise, I noticed new growth, which turned out to be new flower stems emerging from the top of the bulb. This is the first stem to produce two lovely flowers and the other stem still growing. I am so glad this lovely plant did not die.
