I brought my amaryllis indoors in October. I placed it in a basement storage room until this past week. After the leaves had (pretty much) dried out, I broke off the remaining one and ignored it.
I did succumb, thanks to the many posts of amaryllis blooms I've seen lately, to purchasing one in the local WM store. The bulb on the left is the new bulb. Note that it has a couple of leaves beginning to grow. The one on the right is the one in question.
Believe it or not, the soil had not even dried out yet when I brought the bulb upstairs. Now... it hadn't begun to grow, so I suppose I'm rushing things... but, what's that little spear sticking up next to the bulb? Did the it reproduce?
Or is my amaryllis shadier than I am? ;-)
