Cherished for generations, the Smith & Hawken Amaryllis Bulb Kit has become a holiday tradition. The bright and festive amaryllis bloom is a vibrant sign of life in winter. Few bulbs are easier to grow or bloom with more exuberance than the amaryllis. A green thumb is not required, just follow the simple growing instructions and experience the amaryllis coming to life. Watch it grow day by day until the buds burst into spectacular bloom. The blooms are big, often five to six inches wide, making a grand impression. Each kit comes with a ceramic planter (not plastic), amaryllis bulb, growing medium, easy-to-follow growing instructions and a guarantee to bloom.

I've bought these bulbs each year for the last 3 years. They are very easy to get blooming the first round. The pot is good quality and the soil is ok for the first year since all the energy the plant needs to flower is stored in the bulb. If you're having it bloom during the winter months you'll need to let it stay in full to mostly sun till the end of your growing season. You'll want to water when the soil starts to dry out 1-2" down. If you've put amaryllis in a terra-cotta pot you'll need to water more since those pots breath. If you're using the stock pot you'll probably need to water let.

The trick to re-blooming is to let it go dormant 6 weeks before you want it to start its reflowing. If you have a basement stick it in a dark section and let the leaves die. Cut off all the dead leaves so there is maybe 2-3" above the main bulb. The plant will naturally dry the remaining leaf parts and you don't want to cut too low.

After the 6 weeks have lapsed take the plant out of the basement, place in a southern facing window and the bulb will start growing new leaves. After 2-3 leaves have grown you should start seeing a new flower stalk developing. If the plant got enough energy during the summer you may even get two flower stalks. Once the flowers has bloomed and died let the stalk dry out and cut towards the base.

Rinse and repeat....collect energy during summer, dormant for 6 weeks, and flower. Mine flower each year.

Smith & Hawken typically have some quality bulbs and the ceramic pot seems like good quality.

The plant will likely outgrow the pot in a few months, so a cheaper option is Home Depot's kit with a plastic pot 50% off for around $3.58 B&M.

Has anyone bought these kits before? New home owner here and I would like to try these. But doesn't know anything about gardening. How frequently to water these? What else I have to buy like soil etc. Are these Indoors or Outdoors? How is the HomeDepot bulb kit better than this, if so why is that not FP?

Man, I LOVE these thingies. I buy them every time they go on clearance at Target. They grow super quick and last for a looooong time. Plus, they're super nice looking.

I bought one last week in fact.

You'll need to plant it outside after it finishes blooming for this year. It will naturalize outside and bloom every year without any special care.

Have one of these; put it in the sun and keep it watered and it'll bloom pretty quickly. Move the flower out of the sun to last longer. Once it's done blooming, you let it dry out and go dormant for a few weeks... then you can start the process again.

Although, I can't seem to get mine to bloom a second time. I think I need some fertilizer.

It is in-store, which is why I put B&M (brick and mortar).
