Naked Amaryllis Bulbs
Naked bulbs are for the garden lover who likes to get their hands dirty! These come ready to plant in your own container. Use one with a smaller opening that isn’t too wide, and make sure it has good drainage to prevent rot. Fill with good quality potting soil that includes compost, and water it well before planting. I like to nestle the roots into the soil and leave the top third of the bulb exposed for a very natural and organic look that is absolutely beautiful.
You can stop there, or dress things up a little for the holidays. My favorite is adding reindeer moss—just be sure to wet it first to help preserve that gorgeous green. I also like to mix in miniature pine cones, decorative logs and artificial Christmas décor picks that you can pick up from the local craft store. You can up the glamour by adding height with branches that are spray painted silver for a touch of holiday sparkle. Branches can also help support the bloom so it doesn’t droop or break from its own weight. Simply use twine or thin wire to attach the branches to the stem.
