Hippeastrum 2019
« on: February 28, 2019, 08:21:15 PM »
My Hippeastrum  teyucuarense

 H. teyucuarense is reported in the department of San Ignacio (province of Misiones, Argentina), where grows in a single hill called "Rock of Victoria" (Tey˙-CuarÚ Provincial Park, Province of Misiones, Argentina) among rocks and rich soils.

Rare in cultivation.

Maybe synonym of   H. glaucescens and H. iguazuanam

Bright flowers, yet  at the same time, subtle markings. Very  handsome!

Good Morning,
Unfortunately I do not have an exact variety name
A styled garden seems like a reformatory for nature

J÷rg,

Makes me think of H Aulicum.

Hello,
nice Hippeastrum species shown!

I like to share a small story. All started some 20+ years ago with 1 bulb present for christmas bought from a discounter...
It flowered, grew and clumped up, see image 1 from 2012.

Finally was repotted in a 60 cm diameter container, grown outside in summer, stored in my garage over winter during dormacy.
In 2013 I counted ~25+ bulbs. Image 2
The flower stems can grow 90-100cm high and each flower can reach 20 cm in diameter if you fertilize...Image 3

Now in 2019 the clump became to congested. Time to repot... Image 4

Image 1 of the post shows the flower last summer (June). Around 20 flower stems were emerging, however the flower size was smaller then usual...

In Image 2 you see a pot full of roots. Incredible. It was impossible to separate the bulbs without any losses of roots...

In total 52 bulbs in all sizes were separated. Image 3. :D

I repotted the 5 largets bulbs in my container. I used a dry sand compost mix with organic fertilizer.
The other bulbs got single potted and donated for a school party with tombola.

My bulbs remain stored dry in my garage until the bulbs start growing. When new flower stems reach finger lenght I start watering.
I put the pot outside when it is frost free and I grow them until mid of November dependent on first frosts. I stop watering by end of September.

The hybrid name is 'Naranya'. A dutch grower told me when I showed him my images.
End of story... :)

Quite a story, Armin - and a very successful one at that!  I can  see in image SRGC-20190306_141314_002.jpg that the  many bulbs are  distorting  even that big strong pot!

Large bulbs & tubers have already made several of my pots simply burst.  Smaller ones just get compacted and start to grow in layers.

Maggi & Francois,

indeed, the pot was quite distorted and close to burst. :)

Hippeastrum brasilianum is blooming this week. Although this species is said to be self-fertile, my plants have never shown that trait. As its name suggests, it is native to Brazil, in Espirito Santo state. These plants were grown from seed from Mauro Peixoto planted 12 July 2005.  Since two separate clones are blooming at once, I have tried cross pollinating them.

This species is Hippeastrum yungacense, which is native to Bolivia.  It was described by Cardenas and Nelson in 1965 in Plant Life 21: 57 (1965).  Hippeastrum escobaruriae is considered to be a synonym for this species.  This plant came from Yann in 2014, and it bloom for the second time this year on March 22.

Luca,  I'm glad to see other examples of Hippeastrum iguazuanum.  This plant grew from seeds that Mariano Saviello gave me in 2014.  Mariano said that his plants were self-fertile, but I have not so far been able to set self seeds on my plant.  Have you gotten seeds from your iguazuanum yet?  I have another scape coming on this plant, so I will try again for seeds.

These are Hippeastrum puniceum, from Brazil. The seeds came from Mauro Peixoto and were planted in November, 2007. They have been blooming each spring for several years now. This batch is number 2264, a mixture of seed lots from several localities in Brazil.  They set seed very easily.  I am used to seeing puniceum as a bright red flower, but these from Brazil all have this interesting pastel color.
