Paperwhite and Amaryllis Planting Guide

Amaryllis Looking for a way to bring glorious color indoors this winter?

Amaryllis and Paperwhite bulbs are great plants that can be enjoyed inside while snow has blanketed your garden. By starting them now, they'll even be ready for your holiday celebrations!

Simply follow these instructions:


With paperwhites, you have a choice of planting them using decorative pebbles or potting soil.

For pebbles, simply place the bulb(s) pointed end up inside a pot with no drainage holes. Fill the surrounding area with decorative rocks and then add water. To keep the bulbs nice and moist, make sure the water level comes half-way up the bulb.

To plant using potting soil, fill a bulb pan (with drain holes) with 1-2" of soil, then position the bulb(s) pointed end up in the soil so that they are nearly touching each other. Add enough potting soil so that only the top half of the bulbs remain exposed and then water well.


To plant an amaryllis, find a pot with drain holes and fill the bottom third with potting soil. The size of the pot will depend on the size of your bulb, but make sure you have roughly 1" of space around the largest width of the bulb. Place your bulb pointed end up in the pot and fill the pot with moist soil until the top third of the bulb remains uncovered and water well.
