I am afraid to say this out loud for fear of jinxing myself
but this is the first time in a LONG time that i was able to have an amaryllis come to full bloom in the house. Last year the bulb threw greens but it never flowered, and the year before that the cats snapped the stalk/stem off just as the buds were starting to open....
You can see it is pretty tall, the bulb perched inside a glass with water.
Here is the amaryllis fully open
In this picture you can see there are four blooms on the stalk.
Fingers crossed it will stay standing for a little while!
