Re: Amaryllis??

Peg, I've got some amaryllis in the greenhouse that bloom once or twice a
year and the older ones are 5 years or so.  I don't do anything special with
them, just don't water them too much and give them plenty of light.  When
the foliage turns yellow and starts to droop, I cut it off.  I know some
people fuss with them a lot, but I don't and they bloom just fine.
