Flowers Arrive: Amaryllis Hippeastrum (Minerva)

Simply lovely! Two of the six flowers of my amaryllis (Minerva) are in bloom. As shown in this photo, I have taken the pot down so that the whole plant is below the window sill, out of the direct sIMG_2933unlight, hopefully extending the time that I can enjoy the flowers. The plant, and its two other amaryllis companions, are enjoying their stay in my elaborate indoor plant system, namely my step ladder!

I am very glad that the flowers are maturing at this staggered pace. It reduces the chance of the plant becoming too top-heavy and possibly causing the plant to fall over. Plus, as these mature flowers wither, new ones will take their place. The colors are very pleasing and a welcome sight inside my home!
