How to take care of Amaryllis Aphrodite
Plant the Amaryllis Aphrodite bulb up to three quarters of its height in the pot. Water well after planting and then not again until the leaves appear above the bulb. Attention: compost should never be waterlogged as Amaryllis Aphrodite bulbs will only produce leaves at the expense of flowers. Place the pots in direct sunlight at room temperature. Flowers appear 1-3 months after planting; depending how warm Amaryllis Aphrodite plants are kept and stage of flower development inside the bulb. After Care: After the Amaryllis Aphrodite flower fades, clip it off, leaving the green foliage. Treat the Amaryllis Aphrodite plant like a houseplant. Water regularly and fertilize. In summer, stop watering and let the plant dry out. In September remove the Amaryllis Aphrodite bulb from the pot, taking care not to damage the roots. Store the Amaryllis Aphrodite bulb in a cool dark place for about 8 to 10 weeks to rest. At the end of this time the Amaryllis Aphrodite bulb is ready to force into flower again. Repot the Amaryllis Aphrodite bulb in a pot only slightly larger in circumference than the bulb itself. Place it in a sunny spot and start watering. When the Amaryllis Aphrodite plant begins to grow again, start the feeding program again. You can prevent diseases by spraying with an anti fungicide or if the problem develops during the growing season apply weekly.
