My amaryllis last year was a serious disappointment – one flower stalk which began fading before it was full opened. I look forward to a couple of weeks pleasure from this one (2016) – two sturdy stalks, each with four blooms. A bit of spring in the midst of winter!

Home heating can do that, although I can never remember which types of heating dry the air out the worst.
Hot air. I think it was just that bulb. I’ve got a strong stalk coming along beautifully this season.
Hot air should not be as dry as other heat sources. (When I was in school, we had a weird radiant heat system in the ‘ceiling'(!) That seemed like a weird place to put it, unless one wanted to heat the attic. Anyway, it was very dry. If it is doing better this year with the same heat, than the heat should not be a problem.
Mine has done almost nothing!
