Remember I showed you the paper whites my mother bought for me? Well, they have been growing, slowly, but growing. My mother’s amaryllis has already begun flowering. I suspect I know why hers was so quick and mine so slow. It’s the temperature we keep our thermostat set. My mother’s is set for 68 but the reading says 70 or even 72. Ours is a programmable model which is set for 63 during the day and 60 at night. That’s my theory anyway.
