Default broken amaryllis

Similar question for you. One of my cats knocked my amaryllis over and all the flowering stems were broken in the fall. (It literally just began to bloom 2 days ago.) Is it possible, with support, to save the current stems and buds or will i have to cut it back?

the quicker you notice and prop them back up the
better the chances.

does it hurt anything to try? splint them like a
broken limb. wrap some card stock around them and
tie it in place, but not too tight that it bruises
the plant.


A good use for an old nylon stocking.

No one asked what you use to wank off with, Sheldon.
