Amaryllis, crinums, and blood lilies are just a few examples of beautifully blooming Florida-friendly plants with a true bulb, which is an underground root structure that stores water and nutrients during dormancy or extended periods of stress due to cold or drought.
The bulbs of these plants can be divided in several different ways to produce new plants.
The simplest way for many bulbs is to just separate the bulblets from the primary bulb. Pot or plant them with the pointy end up. Store bulblets in a cool, dry place for up to a week before planting.
Other bulbs like amaryllis can be easily propagated by cutting them into wedges.
