    How to Plant:

    1. Location: Select a site with full sun to partial shade.
    2. Soil Preparation: Prepare the soil to a depth of 20cm, ensuring it is loose and well-aerated.
    3. Planting the Bulbs:
      • Position the bulbs with the roots downwards and the 'neck' slightly above ground level.
      • Space the bulbs 10cm apart for a dense display or further apart for a less crowded look.
    4. Container Planting:
      • Use a well-draining potting mix.
      • Place some gravel at the base of the pot to improve drainage.
      • Keep the bulbs fed and watered until they enter winter dormancy.

    Care Instructions:

    • Fertilizing: Use a pelletized chicken manure annually, supplemented with liquid fertilizer.
    • Watering: Water regularly, especially during active growth, but reduce watering as dormancy approaches.
    • Naturalization: These bulbs prefer to stay in the ground for multiple years and do not need annual lifting.
    • Storage: Refrigeration is unnecessary; Hippeastrum bulbs thrive best when left to naturalize.

    Additional Notes:

    • The Hippeastrum 'Candy Cane' produces strong stems and vibrant striped blooms, making it a top choice for cut flowers.
    • Large, flowering-size bulbs with a healthy root system are provided, ensuring true-to-type flowers.
