on my Hippeastrum
have three hippeastrum which I repotted in September. They've had
no flowers, only greenery. I have followed the instructions on the
leaflet but this was no help. Please advise.
do not like being disturbed repotting can disrupt flowering
for two to three years. With a bit of luck you may get flowers next
October, but it may be another year before you see any.
They like full sun to
light shade. For container-grown hippeastrum, feed with a controlled
release fertiliser, such as Osmocote, in early spring. Liquid feed
with Thrive Flower and Fruit (which is high in potash) once a week
after flowering has finished until leaves start to yellow.
