Well well well, look who's opening up!
C'mon out, don't be shy...
There we go!
Check out this Aphrodite amaryllis. This was a $5 boxed bulb and plastic pot from Walmart probably a year or two ago. It spent the summer out on the deck being completely neglected and had long lanky leaves straggling all over the place, then got hit with a bit of frost once or twice before I brought it in (hint: frosted amaryllis leaves are GROSS!)
And surprise! It's the first amaryllis to bloom! As a bonus, I now see a second stalk from the main bulb coming up, and there's a couple little "pups" (I think that's what the baby bulbs are called) on either side. Yay!
