FAQ
Question: 

When should I plant an amaryllis bulb in order to have it in bloom at Christmas?

Answer: 

An amaryllis bulb usually blooms about 6 to 8 weeks after planting.  Plant the amaryllis bulb in early to mid-November for spectacular blooms at Christmas.  To increase your odds of having an amaryllis in bloom at Christmas, pot up one amaryllis bulb in early November and a second one several days later.
