How to Plant Hippeastrum Bulbs

  • Plant Hippeastrum Bulbs in a sun-kissed location, allowing the warm rays to caress their breathtaking blooms. Full to partial sun provides the perfect stage for these summer wonders to unfurl.
  • Place the bulbs in the soil with their pointed ends facing upward, burying them at a depth that is twice the height of the bulb. Ensure proper spacing to allow each bulb the space to showcase its individual beauty.
  • Hippeastrum thrives in well-draining soil enriched with organic matter.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged during the growing season. Adequate hydration is essential for Hippeastrum to produce their majestic blooms and lush foliage.

Care Tips:

  • Treat your Hippeastrum to a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. This feeding routine ensures a continuous burst of floral opulence.
  • As the flower stems emerge, consider providing gentle staking to support the weight of the magnificent blooms. This ensures that your Hippeastrum stands tall and proud in your summer garden.
  • Protect from slugs, the fresh tender foliage is a favourite snack for snails and slugs
  • After the flowering period, allow the foliage to wither naturally. This process allows the bulbs to store energy for the next blooming season. Resist the urge to remove foliage prematurely.

Can Hippeastrum Bulbs be grown indoors?

Absolutely! Hippeastrum adapts well to indoor cultivation. Pot them in well-draining soil, place them in a sunny location, and witness the indoor elegance of these bulbs.

How often should I water Hippeastrum Bulbs?

Water regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Adjust the frequency based on environmental conditions and the specific needs of your Hippeastrum.

Are Hippeastrum Bulbs deer-resistant?

Yes, Hippeastrum is known for its deer-resistant qualities. These bulbs add a touch of floral sophistication without attracting unwanted garden visitors.
