Leaves Are Finally Sprouting!

Last month, I bought some Amaryllis bulbs on sale from White Flower Farm. I planted the bulbs about 3 weeks ago, and one of the bulbs finally started sprouting! I am so excited! I can't wait until it blooms, so that I can try to pollinate them to coax it to produce seeds.  I saw it done on one of Mr. Brown Thumb's blog.  It's so cool, it produces these neat seed pods.  I am looking forward to trying it, and hopefully it will produce enough seeds that I can share. :)

  1. I love amaryllis. Very cool about the seeds. I hope it works and you get plenty.

  2. Oh...can't wait to see your progress on this. So interesting.

  3. Hope you have better luck than I did. I was very excited to start my first amaryllis bulb and got big healthy leaves -- but no flower stalk!

  4. In my other house a few years I purchased several bulbs from my local garden store, I was just so excited when they sprouted. Congrats, and I so can't wait to see how they go to seed as well.

    Looks like I have to check out mr. brown thumb as well.


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