Indoor Hyacinths. I Have 2 pots of 3 hyacinths which I am growing for the first time, can someone tell be how much water they should have please, also an amaryllis, which is about 2 " tall and showing a bud. I don't want to over water.



I just keep mine damp not wet.......I had hyacinthsfor christmas and then went aay for a week, I watered them before we went and they are flowering beautifully and still don't needwatering!

On the Amaryllis, I would allow the top 1/2 cm of compost to dry between soakings. Depending on temp and humidity, about once every week or two, less often if there is little leaf growth.

I agree with all above - just damp.
