Wake up!

I bought a dormant Hippeastrum cybister back at the end of November. I potted it up right away, gave it just a bit of water to settle the soil, and tucked it in the basement closet for some cool, dry dark. I’ve been eagerly checking every few days to see if it had woken up yet.

And today it had!

I pulled it out of the closet, set it in a northwest facing window and gave it some water and light fertilizer. Now to watch it grow and bloom!
