Amaryllis Getting Ready To Bloom

A bloom pod as formed on my largest Amaryllis plant. I yet to figure out what triggers these plants to bloom but it is a real treat when they do. The plant produces four huge flowers with each one about 90 degrees a part. This plant has already produced two other bulbs and one of those as matured enough to bloom.

I found this entry on the web about how to care for the Amaryllis. I keep the plants in the sunroom so they do seem to go dormant in the winter by losing all their leaves.
