A few weeks ago I was at the grocery store and I found some Amaryllis bulbs on a clearance table.  I know, the clearance table at a grocery store is probably not the best place to buy bulbs, but I had to rescue them.

 

I planted all three bulbs and placed them in an east facing window.  All three sprouted, but one of the bulbs immediately shot up two flower stalks but no leaves.  The other two bulbs sprouted and have both flower stalks and leaves.

 

Has anyone ever had an Amaryllis want to flower so badly that it forgot to produce leaves?

 

Thanks.

Yep, "diggin" this can be the habit of the plant - it was just so ready, then the leaves will push later, have two in bud right now from last year's clearnace specials crop. One inside waiting for it to sprout and two more in the cold greenhouse still dormant. Let the leaves mature and die back like any other bulb - dry period spring to summer

Hi Margaret,

 

Thanks for the reply.  My one Amaryllis still has no leaves, but has already started to bloom.  I will put him back in front of the window when it's done blooming, and hopefully at some point he figures out that he forgot to send out his leaves :)

 

The other two plants are doing well, but haven't started to bloom yet.  This has to be one of the easiest indoor plants that I have tried to grow.  Just add water and stand back...

Sorry for the sideways images but it took me so long just to post even these, here! Would much rather be on Facebook - where I can just point click shoot and load!
