New thread moving from Blooms and Chat #1.I will also be doing a little housecleaning of the extra threads on the forum so some of the little used and older threads may disappear within the next few days.

Happy new year.They may be clones from the same plant.Those would tend to bloom at the same time.
I know that brugs do that so maybe hippis do too.

Well this plant is very old-probably a bulblet from a 60 year old plant. No clones then.

Happy New Year everyone!
My other amaryllis has started to bloom this New Year....so all the while I thought it was an Amaryllis Apple Blossom..as it blooms, it shows it is not..haaay..another wrong tag name victim from the stores..oh well...but here she is making her debut..and am happy to start new ones soon, my dear aunt gave me some bulbs, so we'll see how they look like later on!

From the way it looks, seems like it is an Amaryllis Minerva.

Not Picotee but it might be Apple Blossom.Apple Blossom might be an oldie but it is still one of the most beautiful.

On my first attempt to force Amaryllis bulbs started on 21Nov2011, it indeed is fun, a great exercise in patience..and the real surprise of getting a different type of bloom instead of the one on its label....so I am now more encouraged to grow this lovely beauty Big Grin

A summary of my wait for the bloom:

And this New Year, I got freebies from my aunt, so will start the cradle once again:

I thought the amaryllis on the first set of photos are finished with her blooms, have removed the seed pods of the spent ones, and I think more flower buds are trying to come out. Not sure if it will still proceed but that will be nice Smiling

Such a nice warm weather we are having today! Brought my amaryllis outdoors to enjoy the sun! I wonder if I should risk it and leave them outdoors at night..we still go low 40's at nighttime..

Have decided to return all my Amaryllis indoors once more, they were okay at 65 to 80's, but once night time came and the 40's rolled in, the leaves started to droop...I guess I just have to be more patient and wait for a more stable warmth outdoors Big Grin
