Fermi are You breeding on your Amarylis to get seed plants and are You able to get something interesting?
You do have some variation so maybe a start for breeding. Not sure how long from seed to flower so maybe it takes too long to be interesting?
Nice to see the variation. Not so much variation in Portugal and no plants in Sweden
Potting in Lund in Southern Sweden and Coimbra in the middle of Portugal as well as a hill side in central Hungary
