Naked Lady Plant
Amaryllis Dutch Lily is a perennial bulbous geophyte with one to two erect solid stems which appear in late spring & early summer. The inflorescence bears 2–12 showy fragrant funnel-shaped flowers on a 'naked' (leafless) stem, which gives it the common name of naked-lady-lily. The flowers which may be up to 10 cm in length, appear in the spring before the leaves (hysteranthy) which are narrow and strap shaped.
Dutch Lily plant is happiest when it is getting plenty of sunshine and warmth. Make sure to place it either beside a sunny window or on the outdoors. The way it reflects sunlight makes it more attractive in its natural state.
Make sure that the soil maintains a level of dryness throughout its life. When planting use a fast-draining soil for your Belladonna Lilly and keep in mind not to let excess water hang around for long, especially around the roots. Otherwise, the true beauty of this plant will not be realized. The bulbs may rot and the flowers may appear to be unhealthy, or it might not even show up at all.
Amaryllis can be used effectively as foundation plantings to make a pleasing contrast to nearby evergreen shrubbery. Other uses for amaryllis include mass plantings, in tree islands, on slopes, near a gate entrance or in borders.
Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.
Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
