Amaryllis

by Jolien Dekens March. 11, 2019 140 views

At the first of January, my aunt gave me an Amaryllis. It was still very small. But it grew so fast that you could almost see it grow while you were looking at it! I have a history of not being able to keep my plants alive, but I was dedicated to see my Amaryllis bloom. So I took care of it as best as I could and after couple weeks my plant awarded me with gorgeous red flowers! These pictures are also some of the first ones I took with my Lumix camera :)

Since I proved to myself I can take care of plants I really want to get some other ones. What kind of flowers/plants do you keep and why? What is your favorite house plant?

Nice Jolien!
Plants hate my house, I love plants.
I have a few succulents that do well, and a christmas cactus.
I think our fireplace dries the air out too much for most to thrive.

Ow that's too bad! Luckily there's such a thing as succulents and cactuses :)

I tend to go with functional plants like Oregano or others herbs. Orchids are my absolute favorite plants.

I always go for plants that don't need lots of care. Palms and such ... smile
