Few tender bulbs produce flowers to rival the beauty and delicious fragrance of this dazzling white amaryllid. Clusters of 3-inch blossoms on long thick stalks appear in late winter and early spring, but bulbs can be brought to flower practically any time of year by withholding water for several weeks, watering only enough to keep foliage from dying off completely.
Pot in mix of three parts fibrous loam and 1 part well-rotted manure, with sand added to provide good drainage, since eucharis likes plenty of water while growing. Provide full sun during winter but some protection during summer.
Syringe frequently to control mealy bugs and thrips. Repot only when necessary as plants grow best when roots are not disturbed. Bulbs can be separated for propagation during spring, but growth will be checked; if propagation is attempted, water sparingly until new growth is evident.
