It is spring here and it is all go.  Have bought a Hippeastrum Red 
Nymph.  The bulb is bare rooted, getting a bud, just the beginnings of 
the tipof the bud is showing.

I don't want to plant this one in the garden.  I have a large shallow 
terracotta planter.  Could I use that for it?  As I don't usually grow 
things inpots, this will be a first.  And what sort of mix?  Pumice? 
Orchid mix?  Potting mix?
