What Houzz contributors are saying:

Keep the plant at room temperature, above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The warmer the temperature (70 to 80 degrees night and day is ideal), the faster the bulb will sprout and grow. Watering with warm water or providing bottom heat (by setting the pot on a propagation mat or on the top of a refrigerator or warm appliance) may help stimulate growth.Within two to eight weeks (possibly more), a thick flower stalk should shoot up. Flat leaves will follow as the flower stalk grows. Some varieties of amaryllis take more time to sprout than others, so be patient. Check to make sure that the bulb has remained firm, and do not overwater.Rotate the pot slightly every few days so that the flower stalk receives consistent exposure on all sides and thus grows straight. Move the plant out of direct sunlight when the flower buds begin to show color.Ensuring Future BloomsUnlike most other forced bulbs, amaryllis will bloom year after year, given proper care. The secret to successfully growing amaryllis: Keep the plants actively growing after they have finished blooming, as flourishing leaves provide necessary nourishment to the bulb.1. Cut individual spent blooms off as they wilt, so the plant doesn't waste energy trying to produce seeds. After the bulb finishes blooming entirely, cut off the flower stalk close to the base but keep the leaves intact. Some experts recommend leaving the long stem intact until it yellows, as it manufactures food that is stored in the bulb. (The long bowed leaves of the amaryllis make it an attractive houseplant even without blooms.) Keep the plant moist and fertilize regularly.2. In June, or once there's no chance of frost, you can place the amaryllis outdoors for the summer if desired, preferably in its pot to protect it from insects. Acclimate the plant to the outdoors by first placing it in shade or indirect light before gradually moving it to a bright spot or garden bed where it will receive full sun for at least six hours daily.3. Water regularly so the plant doesn't dry out, and continue to fertilize. Leaf growth may continue, which is a good sign that nutrients from the leaves will feed the recovering and growing bulb.
