Skipped a day again and this shows how the amaryllis looked this morning, the third leaf remaining hidden between the two others:

It is amazing how fast it grows. It is only a week old...
We can see the shadow of the third leaf in the previous picture.

After skipping 2 days not much has changed: it grew and the four leaves are now all visible but nothing else has made its appearance:

Here's the next one (or better: two):

This morning I suddenly discovered the start of the flowering stem, outside the leaves and it is seen as small green triangle just above the bulb:


Sony Alpha 580, Tamron 28-200mm at 45mm, f/8, 1/320s, ISO400

and an enlargement is seen here:


Sony Alpha 580, Tamron 28-200mm at 200mm, f/8, 1/100s, ISO400



The tallest leaf is now 35 cm above the bulb, tip of the flowering stem is 2 cm.

And thanks for all the interest

The flowering stem has now grown to 6 cm:

The leaves do not grow much now, so I haven't photographed them today

The flowering stem keeps on growing and one can now distinguish the stem from the bud:

and the four leaves keep on growing too, although not as fast now:
