Is this normal or red blotch?

khatwoman(9a)June 14, 2013

I bought these mini amaryllis bulbs from ufseeds. I received them two days ago. There are red spots on all of them and some stems are turning pink. Is this an infection? Should I return them or is this a normal injury from shipping??

I don't think you have red blotch, but those long, pink necks on the bulb do not look quite right for Hippeastrum. I wonder if they gave you Lycoris bulbs. What do others think?

Are these Amaryllis Belladonna (AKA Naked Ladies)? I think your bulbs are probably fine- I don't see anything concerning in these pictures. -Tina

Liliac Discoloration, is due to exposure of live parts of the bulb to light, previously white when freshly exposed after peeling.
