More on caring for "amaryllis"
In most parts of South Carolina, holiday amaryllis bulbs can be added to your garden or the front of shrub beds when all chance of frost is over. For successful transplanting, keep the indoor plant healthy and growing after it flowers to replenish or build back that bulb. Cut off faded flowers, don’t let them go to seed. Set the plant in a spot with bright but not direct sunlight. Keep it moist but not wet, don’t over water or let it sit in a container with water in the bottom. Those long strap-like leaves aren’t particularly attractive, after flowering, group your amaryllis pots together with an attractive houseplant in front to hide them. You can add a diluted house plant fertilizer once a month– don’t think you need a high middle number, it’s easy to get too much phosphorus.
