Read on below for everything you need to know about waxed amaryllis before picking out your perfect kit.

What Are Waxed Amaryllis?

Have you ever wanted carefree blooms without the work of growing them? That is exactly what a waxed amaryllis are! Amaryllis bulbs have everything they need to produce beautiful and elegant blooms this winter!  A colourful wax coating is applied to the amaryllis bulb by hand and a wire stand is applied to the base of the bulb to keep it upright. The wax seals the moisture into the bulb, so it does not need to be potted, planted, or watered. It grows on its own! So once you have it, you don’t have to do anything with it. No mess, no fuss, no worries; all you need to do is relax and enjoy! It takes about 4-6 weeks to bloom and each bulb will produce 2 or more stems of 3-4 flowers each. The after blooming care of these bulbs is a snap. Once they have finished blooming, the resources of the bulb are depleted and are ready for the compost.

Pro Tip: Remember to turn your bulb so the flowers grow straight as they will grow towards the light.
