RE: A great trip


Well, I should be able to handle 4th grade.  It may be too late, but I'll
put a sleeve around the pot to see if I can't coax a stem and stretch the
bloom a bit.  

Thanks everyone for your input and ideas on this!

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5) Where the buds on my double record amarylis are
separating today and my Red Lion Amaryllis must have grown 3 more inches
tall.

Sounds like the makings of a fourth grade science project!
