You’ve just reminded me to take off the first stem on mine. The second stem is almost the same height now!

Interesting. Why the bul is out the soil?

Amaryllis should be planted with about half the bulb out of the compost otherwise they rot!

This one is further out of the compost than normal though!

This bud has almost reached the height of the previous flower whose scape is about to keel over. It will probably flower in time for Christmas.

I have others alongside it that are at different stages in their growth. One in particular that has a twisted scape should flower about Christmas or the New Year. Others have buds in the neck of their bulbs & will probably flower at the end of January 2020.

I'm impressed. The ones I saved were deep in the ground, about 2 or 3 inches the big ones. we had to dig around to take it. When I moved it from the pot to the ground it already had buds, so We kept it outside, but the entire bulb went under the soil.

Probably a different kind of Amaryllis to yours.
