Description

The Waxed Bulb Amaryllis (Hippeastrum spp.) is a stunning flowering plant known for its vibrant and eye-catching blooms. This variety of amaryllis is unique in that its bulb has been specially treated with a wax coating, giving it a distinctive and decorative appearance. The bulb is enveloped in a smooth, colorful wax layer that not only adds an aesthetic touch but also helps retain moisture, reducing the need for traditional planting in soil. The waxed bulb amaryllis typically produces large, trumpet-shaped flowers in a range of captivating hues, including red, pink, white, and various bi-color combinations. The striking contrast between the glossy, wax-coated bulb and the lush green foliage creates a visually appealing display, making it an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor decor.

Use and Care Instructions:

  • Placement:
    • Waxed bulb amaryllis can be placed in a variety of settings, including indoor spaces like living rooms, dining areas, or office desks. They can also be displayed outdoors, provided the climate is suitable.
  • Light:
    • Place the amaryllis in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can cause the wax to melt and damage the plant.
  • Watering:
    • The waxed bulb amaryllis requires minimal watering due to the wax coating. Simply place the bulb on a saucer or shallow dish and add a small amount of water. The roots will absorb the moisture they need through the base of the bulb.
  • Temperature:
    • Keep the plant in a room with temperatures ranging from 60-70°F (15-21°C). Avoid exposing it to extreme heat or cold, as this can stress the plant.
  • Fertilizing:
    • Fertilization is not necessary for the waxed bulb amaryllis during its blooming period. The nutrients required for flowering are stored within the bulb. If you wish to encourage future blooms, you can apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer after the flowering period.
  • Blooming:
    • The waxed bulb amaryllis will produce large, showy blooms typically within 4-8 weeks after the bulb has been placed in water. Once the flowers open, they can last for several weeks.
  • After Flowering:
    • After the flowers have faded, you can remove the spent blooms. If you wish to encourage the bulb to flower again, you can let the foliage continue to grow. Place the bulb in a bright location and continue to water it as needed.
  • Reflowering:
    • With proper care, the waxed bulb amaryllis can be encouraged to bloom again in future seasons. Allow the foliage to continue growing and follow the care instructions above. After a period of dormancy, typically in the fall, you can initiate a new flowering cycle by providing the bulb with water and light.

By following these care instructions, you can enjoy the beauty of the waxed bulb amaryllis for seasons to come.
