Hippeastrum Ruby Gem
A real ruby coloured bloom, strong stems and a huge flower. A good cut flower and a unique colour.
Our Hippeastrum have all been flowered and are true to name and type. Stock offered are large, flowering size bulbs, with a viable root system intact. They are ready to plant upon receipt of the bulbs, leaving the neck just exposed. We recommend a cacti/succulent mix for those growing them in pots. If growing your Hippeastrum in the ground, try mounding the bed slightly to avoid wet feet.
Hippeastrum are long lived bulbs, thriving on a good dose of tucker each year. We use pelletised chicken manure with our Hippeastrum, along with a booster of Drewitts Bulbs custom bulb fertiliser, available from our store. Hippeastrum do not require yearly lifting, and can be left undisturbed for many years.
This bulb is in stock and ready for dispatch.
