Hippeastrum / Subtropical / Ornamentals Indoor
These plants can be grown outdoors only in mild frost-free areas.

The large bulbs should be planted with the neck of the bulb exposed above soil level. They are quite water & nutrient demanding while in growth, so ensure that they receive ample water and nutrients at this time.
