Hippeastrum spec. or a hybrid ?
« on: November 08, 2012, 12:51:16 PM »
Hi all ,

I'm not shure if I should  ;D or  :'( ?

I have before many years sowing from PBS BX ( August 2005 ) this plant as Hippeastrum papilio ...it grows well and now I have the first flowers ....but I'm a bit shocked ...thats never a H.papilio  :o
Any ideas ?
I suppose there is going something wrong - maybe a mixed seed portion ?
Anyway it is a nice surprise in this grey November days 8)

Have fun

I'm so sorry for what happened to you Hans, it's frustrating to wait so many years and then "this"...indeed it's a nice Hippeastrum, but... ::)
