I've bought a bulb thing in a pot. I've given it water, but it looks like nothing like the label.

It has to grow. Be patient.

I planted a bulb once, and it grew into a nice Anglepoise lamp.

goes dormant in winter, get the sun lamp on it

If you go to police auctions they're always selling off 600w industrial grade plant sunlamps cheap.

Being serious,  you just need to plant it in a sunny spot and wait a few weeks. I grew one once and it was worth the wait, be aware once they flower they leak this sticky nectar shit which is a pain to clean  off. 

interesting fact: most amaryllis sold in this country are not amaryllis but hippeastrum  trading standards need to investigate! :Old:

I've just been to Wikipedia (fount of knowledge). I don't know whether its South African, or South American, but it does appear to be an immigrant.
