Prune 

An important step to help your amaryllis bloom is to remove the flowers when they are dying. 

You should cut the stems about 2 to 2.5 cm from the bulb, once the flowers finish blooming, but without removing the leaves.

Illumination

Sunlight is one of the most important things for Amaryllis to be able to flower. 

It’s important that you place the plant in a place where it receives sunlight but indirectly. 

Just avoid excessive direct sunlight, as this could burn the leaves of the plant.

Watering

You need to constantly water your amaryllis, as this will help make it bloom more easily. 

The soil of these types of plants needs to be very moist to continue growing and flourishing. 

Especially in summer, it’s very important not to neglect this task.

During winter, it’s important that you water less frequently to avoid excess humidity and the formation of fungi.

Temperature

This plant loves the heat of summer; just make sure to water. 

But where you should be careful is during winter.

The plant must be inside your home during winter, where it receives filtered light from the sun.

When the winter is over you can take it outside again and wait for it to bloom. 

The bulb must be in perfect condition otherwise, it will not have flowers again.

Fertilizer

These plants are recommended to be fertilized every two weeks during the spring and summer. 

This way you will provide all the necessary energy through those essential nutrients that the specific fertilizer will allow the plant to obtain.
