Dolly Genis of Vredendal writes When should I stop watering my amaryllis lilies after they have bloomed in October, and when should I start watering again?

JJ replies The best time to reduce watering and let the plants rest will be in winter, as soon as the leaves start to drop off. Then you can start watering again at the end of August and they’ll bloom again in October.
