UPDATE: Waterless Amayllis is now repotted and living happily by the sink, where I can keep an eye on it. Not the prettiest pot, but it's clay and new and isn't cracked, and has a drainage hole. What more could a waterless amaryllis ask for?!?!?

by the sink you may be tempted to watering it more often, but you can tell from the leaves if you're watering it too much - they'll get yellow on the ends or even get some pale markings in the leaves.

basicallly they are a pretty drought tolerant plant, they can get close to completely dry between waterings, but i try to not let them get that dry. they're pretty forgiving of dry but not as much of too wet. i don't worry about drainage with mine, i just let them go long enough between waterings and they do ok.

mine are still being slow about growing. i only have one tiny shoot off to the side of a larger bulb that is growing (out of 7 larger bulbs). none of the larger bulbs are putting up any leaves or flower stalks yet.

zero flower stalks this year, but my main container of five bulbs so far has four growing leaves and my two other containers each have three bulbs putting up some green leaves. so they were not dead, but really delayed at starting to grow leaves this year.
