Last year at Thanksgiving, I found boxed Amaryllis bulbs on sale for 50 cents a piece! Needless to say, I bought a bunch. They are so easy and so spectacular. Especially wonderful are their stunning blooms in the dead of winter. After the blooms had faded, I cut them back and put them in plastic bags, pot and all, to hopefully weather the hot Arizona summer un-attended. They did great. Once they came out of the bags and got some water, they popped back to life. I am now learning about propagation and have found some amazing info that I will share with you too. So, watch for sales, stock up and save plants after the bloom has faded, they will come back to bless you again and again.
