Amaryllis 2

Here's my first weekly update on the amaryllis progress. You can click here to see the original post in a new window if you'd like to compare. I've kept the photos in the same order to make it easier. These pics were actually taken on Thursday, a week after the first ones.

Here's the first flower stalk, which was just a little white triangle last week. It's grown a little and greened up nicely.

But notice the other side! If you look closely, you can see another flower stalk coming already, and in the center is also a leaf shoot peeking out.

The second amaryllis is growing and greening nicely also, and has added a few more leaves.

But the third one is definitely the winner! Look how much it's grown! I'll soon have to get it out of that window, or it'll hit the top. It's grown 3 or 4 inches since I took this pic. It's growing faster mainly because it had a head start, but also because there are no leaves coming yet to slow the growth of the flower stalk. The others will take off a little faster, too, now that they've gotten a good start. And of course it depends on how much sunshine they get and what the temperature is in that window.

Check back next week for another progress report!
