Question From: H. Grossoehme - Westland, Michigan, United States
Q: When growing an amaryllis in water, should I drain and replace the water periodically? Also, what keeps the roots from developing mold? Thank you very much

A: The water should be changed every 3 days or so. Do no allow it to become cloudy, Keep it fresh and to not allow the bulb itself to sit in water.
