Fertile, well drained soil

Plant each bulb in freshly prepared soil with the the roots down and at least 30cm apart. If possible we recommend planting in a location that will have access to as much sun and light as possible because these bulbs really thrive in full sun. It is also advisable to add some organic mulch to the roots on planting to help enrich the soil. Water well after planting.
Unlike common Hippeastrum bulbs, this outdoor flowering variety can be grown in patio containers, flowers best in a warm sheltered spot. By late autumn the foliage and leaves begin to turn yellow and can be removed. The bulbs rest after this period so avoid watering once foliage is all removed until the following year.
