Sofia amaryllis is a demanding houseplant. It needs sunshine, regular watering, fertilisation and well-drained soil. The flower is so sun- and water-loving that it can safely be planted in a sunny location by pouring a small amount of water into the plant stand. When watering, do not allow water to get onto the bulb.
Behind such a demanding plant is an extraordinary beauty. Amaryllis Sofia usually blooms in spring and summer. The flowers also sometimes bloom in autumn and winter. A flower sprout emerges from the long, erect leaves. Four flowers bloom on the arrow. The petals are rounded, pointed at the edges. Sofia's first colour is perfectly white. Over time, the flower takes on a yellow colour near the centre and light pink dabs.

How to Plant
Guide and tips for planting amaryllis(hippeastrum) bulbs
Choose a pot that is at least 4 cm wider than the bulb and has drainage holes in the bottom.
Fill the pot with well-draining soil, leaving about 2 cm of space at the top.
Place the bulb in the center of the pot, with the pointed end facing up.
Cover the bulb with soil, leaving the top one-third of the bulb exposed.
Water the soil until it is evenly moist, but not waterlogged.
Place the pot in a warm, bright location with indirect sunlight.
Water the plant only when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch.
As the plant grows, support the stalk with a stake to prevent it from bending or breaking.
After the flowers have faded, cut the stem off at the base and continue to care for the plant by watering it regularly and providing it with bright, indirect sunlight.
