Linda, (quietyard) and I met on Cubits and DG, we enjoyed chatting with each other so much that we soon became Email friends, in 2011 we exchange seeds, one packet was from her Amaryllis that she grows in a large container in her Tucson garden. I planted the seeds, only 2 germinated, only one survived, it has taken a lot of babying to get her to where she is today, showing her very first blooms. I think she looks like Red Lion, the bulb is still quite small, maybe the size of a plum. Green Grin!

I call her Linda Baby Lovey dubby

Its great to see someone have success in growing an Amaryllis from seed and actually getting it too bloom. That's about the right time frame for getting it to flower. Congratulations

Thank you Barbara, it was a long wait, I actually didn't expect it to bloom yet, it still being such a small bulb so it was a lovely surprise..
