The leaves are yellowing. I know that the leaves all die out and the bloom shows up in August. I wanted to know whether it needs to be constantly watered. I live in the bay area.
Almost all the plants in this family have an large basal bulb meaning they are tolerant of drought. Water when the top 3 - 4" of soil gets dry; don't soak, just keep the soil moist.
I have them here and they get no summer water, from me or from rain, and do just fine. Amaryllis belladonna are a plant that thrives on neglect and will send up the flower stem in August right through the weeds. Al
Thanks for your advice.
