Well, I had to share an updated picture of my Amaryllis! There are 8 stalks blooming, and I'm so happy with it.
Please keep in mind, I don't use ANY chemical based fertillizers, and the soil is all organic matter. The odd time I'll give it a drink from the cold tea left in the teapot, but that's it.
I don't recommend using chemical fertillizer. Once read somewhere, (lost on me now who wrote it) that products like Miracle Grow and the like, cause the plants cells to grow too big & too fast, thereby weakening them.
To me those products are nothing more than a waste of my good money. Plants grew happily for millions of years without these products, so I don't understand why they'd all of a sudden be so necessary now!
If they don't like me speaking frankly about their product, let them sue me. It'a free country, and like my Grandmother used to say, "You can't get blood from a stone"!
