Hello Andrew, Very interesting . But was it only one clump, what happened to the other bulbs which had the same drought. Here the amaryllis even flower in september while being dry in a box. A local research station is very interested in the subject, as November flowering is of great interest to commercial cut flower producers. If you have any more information on the treatment of that special clump.There could me more to it than simple drought. Kind greetings Lauw de Jager http://www.bulbargence.com/ South of France ----Original Message----- It does appear strange to see the clump pushing up both leaf growth and flower heads at the same time.
