I bought this to use as a Christmas display. It arrived in very good condition and I only had to give it water and light to get it going. It was so eager to bloom that it is starting to fade already. I should have waited a week or so longer to order it. I had assumed that it would take five weeks to be in bloom as other amaryllis I have grown did. Maybe it bloomed faster because they are miniatures? . All of the bulbs bloomed at the same time just as I hoped they would. The white is particularly pretty as it is a double, and the pot they are in is quite attractive. Both of the reds (a little on the orange side) have two stalks. The white has one, but did have a second stalk showing that did not come out. I like that it is not too tall. The plants themselves are about 18", overall just under 24"

I ordered three of these planters, two as gifts and one for myself. Haven't heard about the bloom colors from my giftees, but mine had three bulbs of the red and white striped variety, rather than 2 solid red and one solid white as pictured and described. Pretty, but not what I'd ordered. But all three bulbs bloomed well over several weeks (a total of 21 blooms), and the copper planter is attractive and worth keeping. Without any provision for proper drainage, though, it's difficult to judge how much to water. Hence,the bulbs took longer to start growth, because I didn't given them enough water initially out of concern for possible bulb rot, and only one of the bulbs survived beyond the blooming period, since the planting medium was too wet during bloom, resulting in bulb rot.

WOW just WOW !!!

With 75 other reviews in today mine no doubt will be lost. But ours were quite beautiful and bloomed quickly. Like a few others our white came up slightly higher than the reds and slightly behind them. But just wonderful blooms and the white is a full sized flower the reds were a bit smaller sized. With things of nature one does not expect exact performance as the picture shows but delighted us and is delighting us. We had to remove the mossy like material the pot came with and go to just soil because it attracted our 3 cats who refused to leave it alone. Even attempted to take a dome top we weighted down over it off. Once that was removed the cats could care less about the plants. Recommend but be realistic people flowers are nature and they have their own schedule no matter how much effort man kind puts into them or tries to control the out come. Go with the flow. Enjoy!!!
Beautiful, but not very miniature.
from Villa Rica, GA
These miniature amaryllis are not very small at all & grew beyond the capability of the container they came in to keep them upright, etc. further the two red ones though very beautiful, bloomed & spent their flowers before the white one even began to grow its stalks, Very beautiful though. Needs little care. Retains water, so I suggest giving the flowers & leaves a shower as opposed to watering the soil direct. Needs a sunny location.
I Love These Planters
from Blakeslee, PA
I ordered this in November as part of a Christmas shopping shipment. I wanted some garden color for my home besides the usual poinsettia. These flowers grew and bloomed very quickly, yet they also sent up flower stalks even after Christmas. I intend on ordering several more planters for the other months. They look beautiful in my family room window. The only con I would have is that they bloom so fast! I was hoping for most of the bloom right at Christmas but it turned out well as I did have some blooms for Christmas due to the reblooming. Six, very large flowers from the planter.
About Me Getting Started
Gorgeous and easy to grow!
Bulb was potted by me in a beautiful red pot that came with it. Placed in a sunny window , watered once/week and it really took off. I did not know that there were miniatures and much prefer them as you do not need to stake them and it seemed that the flowers lasted longer than the standard size versions.
from Palm Harbor, FL
Gave two as gifts and one for myself. All three are doing well. Would like to know if I should cut off dead flowers, dead foliage, and can I plant the bulbs outside and when. I live in the Tampa Bay, FL area.
This plant is beautiful

I gave this plant as a gift and within 2 weeks it had large beautiful blooms. This was for someone who has everything, she was surprised and loved it.

I have sent these to some of my older family members. They have enjoyed watching them grow. I appreciate the fact that they are already planted- so no work for them.

Happy with the gifts for our family.
No common sense when filling orders
By Sorry I placed this gift giving order.
I ordered 4 as gifts (direct ship to 4 people) along with the 3 "Plant support stakes" offered with the item at an additional $9.95. They shipped everyone the plant stakes separately, but first - with no mention on the paperwork that a plant was following etc (so everyone wondered why did I get these ???) and then about 5 days later the plant arrived. Where is the thought process here? If they were going to ship items separately, then ship the plant to arrive FIRST!!!

About Me All 8 Were Gifts
As of this writing - I am not sure if all were received so I am unable to say if they have bloomed or not.
Only two bulbs grew
from St. Augustine, FK
We are instructed to return products that are unsatisfactory but how do I return these blooming plants when two are nice and the third is dead? There should be an alternative (partial credit perhaps) to returning plants. It's not as if they would be shipped out to someone else.
Flowers are great gift
About Me Enjoys Practical Items, Recent Midwest Retiree
Since I ordered this for a gift for relatives about 900 miles away, I have not seen it. However, we have made this an annual gift for at least 5 years, each time with a different floral product. They always comment on how wonderful the plants are, how amazing the blooms/abundance/health, and they are most appreciative of this type of gift. A bit of color in the Maine winter gives hope for the spring! I anticipate the same rave reviews this year.Thank you for continuing to offer these products with reasonable prices.
Makes a Great Gift

So easy to grow. Just water and enjoy!

My 80-year-old stepmother was overjoyed to get this gift. She loved the idea of watching the flowers grow in the dead of winter.

Bought 10 last Christmas for gifts. Only 2 bulbs in each container grew. Will order again this year and hope for all three.
A sure thing
By Kat friend
I bought these flowers last year for myself and a neighbor. The 2 end flowers were as pictured but the center one one was full size! What a surprise.

pretty but not all miniatures
About Me Lover of pretty things
Bought and sent four as gifts. All recipients enjoyed their amaryllis(es?), however one said her red flowers were more "orangey" than one would expect around Christmas. Another (in an assisted living home) was thrilled to receive "miniature" amaryllis(es) because her space is limited. She loved the flowers - they were beautiful - but like another reviewer noted - the center, white flower got huge - very tall - much higher than could be managed with the small stakes - and the red ones were also higher than pictured in the catalog. That's my only gripe. Size wasn't accurate and it mattered for one of my gift recipients. Recommended with reservations.

Just as Advertised
from Sheldon, IA
I was ordering a 3-mo. bulb garden for my mother and decided on these for myself to fill out the order. Both products have been great. All three of my bulbs produced four flowers each with a long bloom time. If you need to fill a small space with some bright color, this arrangement can't be beat.

Disappointed in that only 2 bulbs bloomed. Price was a little high for what you got. Probably will not order these again.

Something beautiful on a winters day
By Bonnie O.
from Orlando, FL.
Everyone I sent them to loved them. Beautiful reusable container. I'll send them again this year including one for ME!!
don't assume it's perfect
the people who assume that the bulbs should all grow or that the colors should be as pictures. plants will do what they do, mutate or be a dud. can't blame a company because more people had good reviews, and the unlucky people think because they had a dud that p&h just have bad quality.
3 1/2 stars for bugs

Potting materials brought flying gnats into the homes where I gave these as gifts.

This was a beautiful gift
This was a gift for my son in Seattle. He's been sending my photos to show how beautiful the amaryllis is, which sits in a window.
