Then one week later the kids mark it again and measure how much it has grown.
It's really amazing to see just how fast they grow in one week.
You can see by the marks in this picture that they literally grow many inches in one week!
We have only had this particular Amaryllis for five weeks and it is already blooming.
It has four huge blooms that look similar to a lily.
This one bloomed so fast that I think I will buy another one and start all over.
Maybe each child can have their own and we can make a race out of it : )
