My amaryllis didn't bloom in time for Christmas, but it did bloom for New Years - and boy did it bloom!! Each stem had 4 big candy cane flowers:
Isn't that just amazing? Now to see if I can keep the bulb and store it until next year. My old bulb - which is about 5 years old, only produced 2 leaves and that's it. So I will have to do some research to see how I can restore it to a flower producing wonder. My parents had one that bloomed every year for 15+ years.
