Indoors and planted in pure compost. The compost probably did it. The poor plant just tipped over toward the sun and is still tipped over. Amaryllis do fine in the middle of the room, but the hymenocallis apparently needs loads of sun, which Denmark lacks in winter.


P.S. My living room was probably very warm and it soaked up a lot of water too, very thirsty plant. I think I had 25C in the daytime and about 22 at night.
