Normally one bulb is planted in 6-8 inch pot (15-20cm) of well draining mixture. The potting mixture consists of equal parts of loamy soil, sand and well rotten Farm Yard Manure(FYM). Before planting dip the bulb for 15 minutes in fungicides (0.02% Bavistin solution) to control diseases. Never use fresh manure or pine bark as a part of the medium. Plant the bulb with nose above the rim of the pot. Two third portions of the bulbs should be inside the potting mixture and nose of the bulbs should be planted in upright position.
Amaryllis is also known as Belladonna Lily. It has originated from South Africa. It is closely related to Hippeastrum, also known as Royal Dutch Amaryllis or Trumpet Lily or Night Star Lily. Amaryllis is distinguished from Hippeastrum by the solid flower stalk (scape) and lack of leaves while in bloom. The botanical name of Amaryllis is 'Amaryllis Belladonna L.' and it belongs to the family of Amaryllidaceae.
