After Christmas I found an Amaryllis bulb marked down half price. This is the only way I would buy one as I have a tendency to "lose" plants. All I had to do was add water to the vase and wait. This is what is happening this morning.
I took this picture from the top down so the opening flower could be seen better. On the right is a second bud. These things are so tall. I have seen some that are potted in soil but this one was just in a vase in water with rocks. Can't wait to see the full flower.
