There’s something extremely satisfying about having something live blooming in the house this time of year. One of my neighbors shared a baby amaryllis plant with me over a year ago and this is the second blooming season for my plant. I love how it blooms right around Valentines Day, those vivid red flowers just bring life to the corner of the living room, as it reaches up to the window searching for some sunshine rays.
This one is a vivid red-orange shade and is such a pretty plant. I think I’d like to try more of these, since this one has been fool proof. I sit it outside under my deck on the little patio area during the summer and just keep it watered. Those green stalks soak up the sun and store energy for that burst of flower power this time of year.
And at this time of year when I need a little sunshine indoors the most, this little amaryllis does the trick!
I’ve always loved having live plants around the house and enjoy the greenery and the fact that they are living and breathing.
Do you grow any plants indoors?
