Red Amaryllis needs a good home

DSCN3962It took four years from seed to flower, but it was worth the wait.

This is one of three plants I grew from seed, the other two have yet to flower. Everything I read said that the plants rarely breed true, but this one has, with the same fantastic big red blooms of the parent.

So now it needs a home. Perhaps yours? Let me know.

Amaryllis (properly called Hippastrum) are easy to grow house plants that like lots of light but not too much direct sun. Treat them well and they will bloom every year, Mature bulbs have four flowers on each spike, and produce two or three spikes per bulb.
