Didn't expect this one to flower within the year as the two bulbs were small compared to others and then seemed to spend energy on offsetting but.....

I have pots full of these. Haven't quite figured what they like....started with a few and now have 5 pots full (at least). Blooms are sporadic for me, but bulbs and offsets are growing well. Love the red stripe down the back of the leaf.

This was really a surprise as I kept thinking it would grow but I guess it is a true miniature - leaves and all.
Jessiann I bought this from glasshouseworks so you can order anytime - oh oh - sorry lol.

Yesterday while poking around and moving pots, I found that one of my H. San Antonio Rose bulbs has sent up a scape. I just hope it blooms soon as I'll be gone few days and don't want to miss it!!

Got a photo outside with no flash. It's in the comparison photo.

The last photo I have from this pot of bulbs was 30 May 2010. It might have bloomed since then, and I missed it, but it is far from reliable.

I have a huge clump of it in the front yard. They bloom later than the hybrid amaryllis.

I started with 1 pot full, now have 3 pots full and have given plenty away. Won't be going to Joshua's this weekend.
