Re: Amaryllis

    I do not cut the foliage back. I just put them in a sunny window here in
Colorado, give them water, and they bloom around MArch/April. I guess if I
wanted to have flowers at Christmas I could do the heroic stuff(cut, dry,
rest) but that is too much work and I would probably forget about them. So I
make room for the big foliage and let them be.

It's snowing could be 6-9"  Colorado
