Amarillys

I have had problems getting my Amaryllis' to flower year after year and tried different ways Now finely I got it to bloom I place it in the fridge in the bottom draw wrap it in a paper bag pot and all for 3 months Oct Nov and Dec
then took it out and water it and in about 3 weeks it started to grow 2 leaves and then the flower came up yes yes In the summer I put it outside in the shade and let the leaves and the bulb grow then in end of Sept bring it in and cut it down and store it

Very pretty, and great pic! Sounds like what the yard plants go through here, (except the cold would be Dec-Feb.) excellent replication of high-Z winter!
