Hi ! Here’s hoping someone can help me ! I grow the commercially available
cultivars of Hippeastrum, and have started to seek to grow them on from
year to year. When one buys them they’ll come typically with a pot and
compost, and ones advised to plant them with a third to a half of the bulb
All’s well so far as the leaves are often emerging after the flowers; after
the flowering the leaves typically end up flopping about - and I can’t help
wondering about the growth habit (of the parents) in the wild. Do any of
you good souks know how deep they typically grow/ are planted outdoors?
Many thanks for reading this diatribe!
