Planting tip: If you wish to rebloom the Amaryllis in the fall, stop watering in August and place the bulb, still in the pot, in a cool, dry place for 10-12 weeks. In mid-November, remove the bulb from the old pot; remove dead foliage and old roots, but leave clean, healthy roots intact. Repot in fresh soil as indicated above in a pot only slightly larger than the bulb. If properly cared for, the bulb should bloom in 8-10 weeks.
