    I have had a lot of flowers on one stem, especially from some of the bigger more expensive bulbs, but to be honest I've never counted how many. 

    Lovely pic.

    this was originally a poorly bulb for 50p,so thrilled a few years on,the rewards of multiple beautiful flowers from nursing it well.

    That's what you call gardening image

    What's your regime for keeping them. I don't have a greenhouse or conservatory at this house so I'd stopped growing them, but a young relative has started giving me an amaryllis bulb every Christmas and I want to start keeping them again

    good compost,some sand,on a cool window sill,feed when flowering,never over water,after flooriweringlowering (flowering,cant erase spelling on this site for some reason),frugel watering.As soon as flowers die,nip off,and when all dead,cut stem tto an inch .If babies turn up,separate when they have grown a little,and of course,bulbs stand proud on the soil,I.e half out.
