Fill the pot halfway with potting soil, and center the bulb on top. Continue adding and firming soil until the upper half of the bulb is above the soil surface and the top of the soil is 1 inch below the pot rim. Soak with lukewarm water.
Lighting & Temperature
Place amaryllis pots in a location that is 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Once growth starts, transfer the pot to a bright southern window.
Watering & Fertilizing
Water amaryllis when the first 1/2 of soil dries. Feed when growth appears, and then every two weeks, with a well-balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.
