Heat treatment of actively growing Hippeastrum

posted by: SavannaMan on 03.13.2013 at 04:27 am in Amaryllis/Hippeastrum Forum

Hi All,
From what I have read, heat treatment is usually recommended when bulbs are dormant to control tarsonemid mites or red blotch,Does anyone have experience with this treatment when bulbs are fully leafed? Does it do damage to the plant?

When to transplant??

posted by: louie_st_louie on 09.16.2006 at 12:37 am in Amaryllis/Hippeastrum Forum

I live in St. Louis MO. and need to know when and the best way to transplant. Over the last many years I have recieved plants from family and bought some plants from the nursery. The last 2 years I did not get any flowers and after much investigation it seems I was doing it all wrong.
So I planted all of the bulbs(approx 25)in a large flat last Janurary and took outside after the last frost and have been growing great foilage all year. Now I would like to prepare for next year's flowers.
The Foilage is very green and hardy.
I am planning on bringing inside and stop watering and letting the foilage die off.
Should I repot before I let the foilage die back or should I wait until the foilage dies back before I re pot.
