I have mentioned a few times that my husband is from the Netherlands. His family is in the Flower Bulb business. This does not mean that I know anything about plants or flowers, but I am learning. I have learned that there is more to Dutch flowers then the Tulip... yes, that is the most famous and popular but there are so many more!
There are quite a few bulbs that can grow indoors, those are my favorites! I love fresh flowers in the house!
One of my most favorite is the Amaryllis. This is such a cool flower, it grows indoors- well atleast that is the requirement for the Ohio climate. It likes warmth and sunlight. It takes very little watering.
When they start to grow it is such a fun process to watch... each day the stem gets longer and longer...
Here are some picture of my recent batch.
I have 4 bulbs planted in a pot together! Each bulb can produce 2-4 blooms!
Now for the best part of this post. I am giving away an Amaryllis bulb to one lucky winner!!!
