How to take care of Amaryllis Pink in pot
Treat the Amaryllis Pink plant like a houseplant. Place it in a sunny spot and start watering. In summer, stop watering and let the plant dry out. In September remove the Amaryllis Pink bulb from the pot, taking care not to damage the roots. Store the Amaryllis Pink bulb in a cool dark place for about 8 to 10 weeks to rest. At the end of this time the Amaryllis Pink bulb is ready to force into flower again. Repot the Amaryllis Pink 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 Pink 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.
If conditions prevent planting directly into borders (if soil is frozen or waterlogged), best to plant Liatris in pots, watered sparingly and grown on in a cool position until you can plant them outside.
