I originally bought these bulbs in October 2010, but I had such a hard time getting them to root. I planted them in a shallow dish with pebbles, but the bulbs started to rot. I was about to give up on them but decided to take them outside and drop them in some soil.
For Christmas my in-laws bought me an Amaryllis bulb, and so far that is also doing well. I'm still not very familiar with the watering schedule but I think the plant is doing well. It's turning green and I see the red flowers starting to peek through. It's a good sign :D!
