Reviewed 28th July 2016 by Dushan Stojadinovic

Last Autumn/Winter was my first time growing these gorgeous plants and I can confidently say that growing this deep red Amaryllis in your home in the cold gloomy months of the year will make you feel cosy and special. Very easy to grow either in a vase with just water or planted with soil into a small pot, I grew them both ways. I started my bulbs off on top of a radiator but I doubt that it was necessary, the bulb would have woken up just from being kept wet, and gosh, when they do start sprouting they really keep you excited for weeks. I am now officially addicted to growing Amaryllis, I refuse to endure Winters without them!
