Restock: Easter Amaryllis Bulbs🌸🐰🤍

Amazingly we sell out each week...another order has arrived this week. These will be White Blooms for Easter…white wax will have Pink Apple Blossom Blooms.
A top seller we can’t keep these in stock at the shop, they bloom their hearts out! These bulbs make everyone smile and are the most fun gifts to give. Pink, lavender and white wax dipped amaryllis for Spring. Let us wrap one up for you!
Waxed Amaryllis bulbs do not require any water because the bulbs contain all the water and nutrients they need to flower. Simply place them on a tabletop or any other flat surface in your home. They make for great hearth and centerpiece decoration and are equally wonderful to give as gifts!
These spectacular flowers don't need potting soil or heavy care – everything they need is contained in the wax bulb they are delivered in, including their water supply. 
Once in your home or office, you can leave these Waxed Amaryllis Bulbs just as they are, and have a perfectly placed plant that needs no watering, no direct sunlight, and still looks great. They will literally bloom right in front of your very eyes. 

Some facts to remember:
Amaryllis are tropical plants and should only be planted in the soil in the garden in areas where temperatures do not go too much below 38- or 40-degrees Fahrenheit.
In all other areas, we recommend planting the bulbs in pots, so that they can be brought indoors when temperatures become colder.
Once the waxed bulbs have finished blooming, they need nutrients to bloom again. They get this from the soil and water and fertilizer once they have been planted.
Sometimes the bulbs need more than one season to settle in a pot and replenish nutrients, so don’t be surprised if they make only leaves the first season after being planted.
The average life of an amaryllis bulb that is well looked after, is 25 years. But there are many that have been reported being 75 years old!
When planting amaryllis in a pot, make sure the pot had good drainage. Amaryllis bulbs need a little bit of water, but if the bulbs sit in water, they will rot.
When the wax is carefully removed from the bulb, there may be a bit of mold on the bulb and the bulb will probably not have many roots. The mold is naturally occurring and can be wiped off. If necessary, you can even peel away some of the layers of the bulb. The bulbs should be firm, and not soft or mushy. The roots will regrow really fast, once the bulb has been planted!
