Fabulous performance! Salut from Germany, and thank you for sharing your picture. I feel lucky that I purchased one bulb. From RoyalColors, btw. Interestingly, it is the one and only bulb of that consignment, that has already decided to spontaneously produce a scape while still being stored at 11-14degCelsius=52-57degFahrenheit.

Many more blooms than my "Evergreen", I had two stalks as well. Beautiful neutral coloring to go with other flowering Amaryllis or Hippepestrums. Did you fertilize it?

Do you feed or fertilize them? If so, how often and what do you use? Happy gardening!

Miracle grow or Orchid food. 1/4 strength at every watering while they are inside.
