Meaning of amaralis 

The amaralis are beautiful flowers of different colors and varieties, these plants are excellent for decorating the patios of the houses or the office, in any place that has the conditions that we will name later we can have the amaralis, these flowers are leaves thick can be planted in pots or not very large spaces.

The amaralis flower is ideal to decorate different spaces, it is also quite diverse because beyond the beautiful colors it has different leaves that can be called as double amaralis, giant amaralis or triple amaralis, they can be known by other names depending on the place where they are, they are very common in America.

Care of amaralis

The care of the flower of amaralis is a very important part that must be taken into account before having these plants at home or in the office, because if you do not have the necessary care they will not survive the life time stipulated for each plant, is like all plants and flowers have a life cycle, this same life cycle will last as long as the person wants.

When I refer to the time in which the person wants is because each plant can be reproduced for each bulb of the same, although there are necessary times in which you should be aware to cut the stems and reproduce them again.

But this fact will be discussed later, this time we will discuss the necessary care of amaralis when they are big and strong. For these flowers to be so must be very careful and responsibility, when I refer to responsibility is because it is not enough  just water and fertilize, it is necessary to go a little further to make these plants are beautiful and shiny.

In some cultures or societies it is held as a belief that plants are living, that they listen and feel, when they are spoken and caressed they can be much brighter and even release new children, this belief goes beyond the everyday, It may or may not be taken into account at the time of keeping these beautiful flowers.

Irrigation is very necessary to maintain these plants, although most people know that water is essential to live in the case of plants is the same, because they must be well hydrated to not die dry for this reason échale water to your amaralis. 

Water your amaryllis

When you are going to irrigate the amaralis you must be very careful because you should not irrigate too much or too little. In turn, they should be watered in their stems because if the flowers are watered they can be wilted occasionally, that is why the care of the amaralis are very necessary, especially irrigation.

When these plants are very young or newly born or flowered they should be provided with little water so they do not drown, as they grow they will be placing a little more water.

The time of year is a fundamental part for irrigation depending on where you are and what season of the year you are living, if it is hot it is important to keep the plants hydrated, they are watered very carefully from the root or the land without touching the flowers, two to three times a week, now if the weather is a little colder the plants will not need too much watering, so they should be watered only once a week so that they do not have too much water or too little water.

The fertilization of the plants is very necessary, as these plants are not very large you can use fertilizers that can be obtained in the stores of plants or some homemade such as coffee for example, this will help the plant stay with more life .

There are different fundamental factors so that these beautiful plants stay the necessary time, one of them is the temperature, although the plants are watered according to their weather, they must also be in cool places, not very exposed to sunlight. This means that can be placed near the sun’s rays but very carefully that we hit them directly to the flowers or the stem, because they are very delicate and can wither in sunlight, but with this I am not saying that they should be in closed places.

When the amaralis or amaralis flower is withered by its life time, it is necessary to cut it so that it does not wither its companions, normally these will die over time, but to last much longer the bulbs can be transplanted very carefully.

The care of these plants are the most important, because not having the necessary care will probably die before time and the transplant can not be done.

How to reproduce amaralis?

As for how to reproduce the amaralis flower, we know that the reproduction of these beautiful plants is very easy, it only takes a lot of patience while the growth process is taking place little by little. There are two ways to reproduce the amaralis one is through the replanting of the bulbs and the other, it is through the seeds but, before replanting it must go through different processes.

Before indicating the processes we will pay attention where these beautiful plants should be grown; before reproducing them, you must take into account where you are going to put them. First of all, it should be a place where the sunlight and the shade of it reach easily (previously said that these plants can not withstand direct sunlight is true but from time to time you should receive sunlight directly so that it will give more life).


  • Where will you place the amaralis?

These plants must be planted in fertile soil, it must be sandy and very rich in organic matter, it is recommended that when replanting the plant in winter time it is done on a layer of sand to prevent it rotting due to so much water or humidity.

When you remove the bulbs from the plants to replant them, you should let them rest for some time if they are water, but in a cool place without sunlight, so they do not die.

When they are going to replant, it should not be placed too deeply since the bulb of the plant can suffer damage and not having enough oxygen can die and will not reproduce, that is, only one third of the bulb should be covered and the rest will remain looking out of the earth to be able to reproduce perfectly.

These bulbs should be placed in a cool place, and care should be taken that the soil is not dry (when I say soil I mean the soil of the plant).

When the leaves of the plant begin to sprout they are irrigated, but it must be scarce and very delicate, and when it begins to bloom it can be provided with more water, remembering the care described in previous sections.

When the flowers are fully flowered, the stem should be trimmed, in this way the leaves will reproduce again, after 10 weeks have elapsed, the bulb can be picked up and replanted, in this way the flower will live for a long time.

Other forms of sowing amaralis are by means of seeds, they should be sown with great care, but in the next section we will tell you in a better way how to reproduce amaralis by means of seeds.

Reproduction of Amaralis by seeds

But later we will talk a little more about the bulbs of these beautiful plants for now, we are interested in seeds of amaryllis, seeds that are small, black and very thin, the same plants produce them in a fantastic way, one of the children of each plant provides a ball of seeds, they are hidden in them. In the image that is more ahead you will be able to notice how it is before opening. Then, in the next image you will have notation of how they open to take out the seeds.

These seeds are very thin and can be planted in a small space, that is, a pot not very large because at the beginning you can sow the seeds in a medium cup if you wish, since these must be replanted in your pot, which lasts the rest of his life. Before replanting the plants should be large, it means a proportional size to replant and let grow.

amaryllis flower seeds

To sow the seeds do not drink to take measures, because they are very thin and can be placed one on top of another with the land already paid, there can be a high amount, since not all the seeds are born.

But they should not be completely covered, the seeds can not be very deep, otherwise they will not be born and can remain there without growing, you can add water but from far or few drops to adhere to the Although it is not very necessary if the land is well fertilized, to cover the seeds you can do it with a trowel so that it is not very covered.

When the flowers of these plants are withered they should begin to cut. In the same way, it should be cutting the thick stem of the plant, this does not mean that it will not continue taking care of the bush, on the contrary, it should continue to be fertilized and watering and when the leaves of the plant are completely dry they should be cut flush, also for irrigation.

The flowerpot should be placed in a cool, dark place where sunlight does not reach it, a long resting time is expected and then the bulb is re-planted.
