Re: Amaryllis??

 Have wanted an amaryllis for a long time but am heartily opposed to the idea of disposable plants and had always heard these were unlikely to bloom again.  If this is untrue then I have been really missing out on something...and I'll have to rectify that a.s.a.p.

Last winter it just sprouted a few leaves in the house, butI couldn't bring myself to deep-six it, so it spent another summer on thedeck, where it decided to bloom in August. It's still in its original pot,too.
