Way back in October I bought an amaryllis bulb from a pink ribbon fundraiser. I knew I had grown these before, but I couldn't remember much about the experience. Why didn't I grow these every year? Now I know: these things are HUGE! The plant grew to be three and a half feet tall, and the blossoms are eight inches across. I had this on the dresser in the guest bedroom, but it grew so tall it nearly touched the ceiling. I had to move the pot to the floor. But it sure is pretty! Just the thing to brighten a cold, snowy winter day.
