Basic Wax Instructions

  1. Soak Amaryllis bulb in lukewarm water for 4-8 hours.
  2. Cut off the roots, including the basal plate.
  3. Let the bulb dry for a few hours.
  4. Melt wax (I used old candle stubs but if you don’t have those use some paraffin wax) over low heat.
  5. Paint or dip the wax on the Amaryllis bulbs from the neck down covering the sides and base.
  6. Decorate your bulb as you wish
  7. Place the bulbs in a warm area of the house to encourage growth.
