Amaryllis bulbs potted

After cleaning the bulbs and soaking their roots for a day in water, I potted them up last Thursday.
Initially I could see only three out of the five bulbs show scapes. Now all five have scapes coming out of the bulb. This one even has three scapes! How cool!

And look how big this scape has grown in two days!

I will soon have many blooms, hopefully on my birthday. BQ said two of them were "Picotee" but I don't know which ones. Big surprise when the blooms finally show.
Here they are enjoying their new life on our back porch.
