AMARYLLIS JOKER ® --Red lines streaked on white background right across all petals, with more prominent red line down the centre of each petal. Very fast into flower. Does not hold beyond December. 


Hadeco Amaryllis are an exciting new development in the Horticultural world. Size for size, they will outperform any others as far as number of stalks per bulb, number of blooms per stalk and size of blooms is concerned. Developed especially for pot culture, these amaryllis have stout stems and the leaves often grow simultaneously with the flowers. All Hadeco varieties have passed through extensive testing and are among the very best hippeastrum hybrids in the world. They are selected to be easily forced, long lasting, and disease resistant.

Bulbs are officially 18-20 cm around. This was the approximate size at harvest time, but normally the bulbs shrink in storage. I would describe the bulbs as the size of a large egg. There is some variation with each variety, and actual size depends on the harvest each year.

Amaryllis can be planted in a small pot (not much larger than the bulb) 4 X 4 Is big enough for most bulbs.  You want about ½ an inch to an inch between the bulb and the edge of the pot.

Plant your amaryllis with part of the bulb out of the soil.  In fact, in pots sometimes the whole bulb is above the soil, so that the roots can have more soil under the bulb to grow into. This can make the bulb topple over if it is not fully rooted when the bulb blooms, so be sure you tamp the soil down really well.  This also prevents water from getting into the neck of the bulb easily.  Water well after planting and then water only after the soil starts to dry out.  Once every week or so should be enough. Under watering is better than over watering. Usually I plant them outside after they are done blooming for the first time, but we live in Arizona so if you have frost you will need to keep your plant inside or in a protected area so the bulb doesn't freeze.  They are very drought and heat resistant and will re-bloom naturally in the spring once they are established.
