Just About to Bloom

I am not so patiently waiting for my Samba Amaryllis to bloom. Here is where you can see where I got the bulbs from, and what color it will be. It was doing great, until this week, we got a cold spell and temps dropped from 60s to 39F. Boo! Therefore our unheated enclosed front porch has been chilly. I guess Miss Amaryllis doesn't like that and hasn't bloomed yet. I'm leaving for Utah in a few days for a much needed vacation, how much you wanna bet it's going to bloom while I'm away? (sigh) I wanted to try to pollinate the flower to produce seeds, just like Mr. Brown Thumb does. I hope I'll still be able to.

  1. It probably will bloom when you are out of town...

    Have fun on your trip.

  2. I read about put amaryllis bulbs in dormancy on Away to Garden. Here's one link

  3. That's a pity! After waiting so long, just to have it bloom while you're away. Can some one tape it or get some pics for you, at least? We'd love to see it bloom too.

  4. What kind of equipment do they use for webcams, like those on beaches, or "PuppyCam"? My husband was saying that if you have a camera on your computer, you could set something up by leaving your computer on and pointed to the plant.

    If you are driving, you could take the plant with you. I bet your husband would love that idea. You are pretty far from Utah, though, so I'm guessing you are flying. Well, have fun!

  5. Hopefully it will still bloom when you come back. Enjoy your much needed vacation.

  6. I'm going to try to pollinate my amaryllis bulbs too. Hopefully you will be able to catch it in time!


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
