To enjoy your amaryllis flowers for longer, follow the simple steps below:
• Remove any foliage that would be below the waterline to avoid contaminating the water
• Re-cut the stems at a 45° angle to encourage maximum water absorption
• Place the stems in a clean vase with freshly-drawn, lukewarm water as soon as possible
• Ensure your flowers are positioned out of direct sunlight, away from drafts or heating and avoid extreme temperatures
The longer you have your amaryllis, the more you may notice their stems splitting at the bottom. Regularly re-cut your stems, and change their water every 2-3 days to prolong vase life.
