I received a beautiful amarylis this past Xmas, and forced the bulb..and it was a beautiful red ..2 flowers in fact. Well, after doing that, I read somewhere that after a bulb is forced the odds are against it ever growing again. This spring I put it outside and have been watering it faithfully and low and behold...it lives!!!!!!! Now I have about a one inch shoot coming up from the bulb and I am ecstatic.I am also very lucky because before I knew any better, I put it in the ground tooo early in the spring. Believe me...the poor thing will never be forced again, but, instead it will be treated with extra care
