I posted about starting my Apple Blossom Amaryllis bulb back at the end of December and have been watching it's progress closely. I can't believe that in just three weeks it has grown to a height of 21 inches! Considering it took several days before it began growing, that is a growth rate of over an inch a day once active growth began.
The bud is now bursting at the seams. In fact, the end has begun to open a teeny, tiny crack. I expect it to open any day now and check it multiple times a day so I can photograph it as it opens.
There is also a second shoot that has begun to grow. I'm not sure if this shoot will produce another bloom or if it is just foliage. You can see them below.
Amaryllis Bud Ready to Bloom
I am enjoying forcing my paperwhites and amaryllis this year. Hope you are too.
