I rec'd an amarylis for a Christmas Gift. It only produced 2 blooms and they didn't seem to have any fragrance at all. The ones I have had in previous years always had such wonderful fragrance to them. My husband recalls his dear Mother keeping the bulb after it bloomed inside, putting it down in the basement window until about late Spring and planting it in the bed along side of the carport and it would bloom again later on in the summer. We're trying to remember if she dug that bulb back up after it bloomed outside and keep it in a dark place in the basement again until late winter? If I save this bulb, should I cut the foliage all the way back to the bulb? Should I put the bulb into any type of soil or newspaper packing,etc.?
