Hippeastrum Ferrari


One of the most striking of our amaryllis this has wonderful red flowers.

SKU: H5240 Categories: ,


Hippeastrum Ferrari has wonderfully dark velvety red petals and are one of our most popular varieties. They are commonly grown over the Christmas period but increasingly we sell them for growing in the early spring.

Amaryllis as they are commonly known are a very popular indoor flowering bulb. We supply big grade bulbs which will produce at least two flower stems with 4 to 6 flowers per stem.

Cultivation instructions

Indoor planting: Hippeastrum should be planted in a good indoor bulb compost with a third of the bulb above the soil surface. Plant in pots which are about 5cms bigger in circumference than the bulb. Remember the stems will grow quite tall and thus become top heavy so ensure containers will not fall over easily. Put some crocks in the bottom of the container to allow drainage away from the roots as it is not recommended to have drainage holes in the pots unless you are using a saucer. Water well during the growing stage and feed regularly. After flowering water and feed for a further 8-10 weeks and then with draw water and allow the foliage to die back. Leave dormant for a number of months before starting the cycle again.

Growing tips:

Keep in light warm areas and if the stem bends towards the light turn the pot around.
