Hippeastrum Mandoni

Hi Jim,

I use a mix that is around 60 or 70% pumice and the rest organic matter , usually high-quality potting soil. I keep about 2/3 of the bulb exposed. By the way all my advice was learned from Diana Chapman of Telos Rare Bulbs. She has a blog (The Bulb Maven) That has a lot of really good and specific information about growing Hippeastrum species. I hope this helps and good luck!

I like to use hydroponic fertilizer with most waterings,  But sometimes I use a granular bulb fertilizer after which I skip the hydroponic stuff for awhile. I think patience is the main trick to get them to flower. :-)
