What a pleasant site for February! This big red bloom brightens the gray days of winter. My mom bought me the Amaryllis Red Lion Indoor Growing Kit for Christmas. The kids and I planted the bulb right away and watched the green growth for the last month or so. What a beautiful reward!
This is living science at its best, beginning botany. This project is listed with Lesson 7 : Roots in Exploring Creation with Botany. It also goes along the Lesson 3:Flowers and others.
The kids will remember this experiment, especially since I am taking pictures for their notebooks.
If you live in the north, you still have time to dig up some flower bulbs out of your flower garden and force them.
Botany is better indoors this time of year.
