What was your question? One thing I Can tell you is that your bulb appears to be in a pot that's too small.....and, you can get a flower from a bulb that appears to be 2 1/2" (maybe I'm reading your ruler incorrectly) in diameter, many of the Maguires were smaller than yours and put up flowering scapes... guess I'm just trying to read your mind..........?

Just messing with you? I was going to try and ESP the questions too, but figured I'd just ask!

Opps silly me I must of gotten busy and the darn computer shut it's self off.

Great job on the ESP thou Donna I see you took the liberty of already answering.

Sorry about the Illusion created but the pot is a bit deeper than it appears also the inch side of the ruler is facing us making the bulb 2.5 Cm (1" Apx.)

OK...where is the pot!?! Under the paper?! :-)Sorry...I can't see it at all, not even an outline!...What kind of hippeastrum is this and how big is the pot? I'm just curious to know as I'll be doing lots of transplanting in the next few weeks.

Kristi! Your eyes ARE better than mine, I didn't notice that the bulb was sticking up through the paper! I did think that was the edge of the pot!! Someone is messing with our minds, doesn't take much these days.........

If or when it gives smaller secondary bulb(s) would I call the newer bulbs Pups or Babies ?
To answer your questions:
Regarding ID. As soon as I get it's father plant to confess it's given up the pollen then we can figure it out. I guess the question here could be, how do I get a plant to confess it's accidental cross pollinating ?
The pot (or container if I may ) is 3.2 inches by 3.2 inches and 4.5 inches deep which is well over 1.75 times bigger that the diameter size of the bulb as it has been for three plus years now.Yes it scapes and flowers only at a smaller size than your use to seeing flower sizes on a regular basis.
Ohh just in case your curious. Why did I cover the pot with lined paper ?
To prevent controversial ( see also FAQ link posted) opinions on mediums being used for growth and production for the little bulb you see. The question here should be be, has anyone even counted the FAQs mediums ? Nor did I.
Thank you for your time and questions, I'm glad you could help too & have fun with your re-potting.
