Question: 

When can I move my amaryllis outdoors?

Answer: 

The amaryllis can be moved outdoors in late May.  When the amaryllis is moved outdoors, harden or acclimate the plant to the outdoor environment by initially placing it in a shady, protected area for 2 or 3 days and then gradually expose it to longer periods of direct sun.  Once hardened, select a site in partial to full sun.  Dig a hole and set the pot into the ground.  Outdoors, water the plant during dry weather.  Also, fertilize the amaryllis once or twice a month through July with a soluble houseplant fertilizer.  Bring the plant indoors in mid-September.
