not Bogota

I got this one from ETGB. I ordered Bogota and got this. I swear I have no luck with ordering bulbs this year. My question is does anyone think this is a pale stressed out apple blossom or something else? I noticed it don't have the red in the center like my other apple blossom but could this be due to stress?

Oh, you poor girl!! I have my doubts that this is even Apple Blossom! This surely has been a bad year for mislabels for most all of us and some of the mislabels are junk! Sorry....


RE: not Bogota

Your hippeastrum bloomed in a lack of light, so the flower has a pale color. So now determine its varietal identity is not possible or very difficult ..
Let's wait for the new blossoming flowers. Put this plant into the light brighter. If it does not - wait for the next flowering.

Donna if it wasn't for bad luck I would have no luck at all. This bulb is sending up another scape. I moved it out to the greenhouse so it would get more light lets see if that makes a difference in color.
