    Beautiful ours currently has nce swollen seed pods that we are waiting to mature to plant the seeds but apparently they can take 3-5 years to flower from seed but we are going to give it a go. We got it from a store reduced iin january most of them had grown in the box and wound around themselves but this one graced us with 3 beautiful flowers, Maybe next year we can get some more, the colours on yours are beautiful, I cant help but love amaryllis

    Very nice, the red one is especially pretty. I am envious. I have one like in the second picture, but it did not get flowers this year, only leaves.

    dont get me wrong i love orchids too, actually i want more, its just that there are also
    other plants that are as pretty as orchids, amaryllis and stargazer comes to mind. we've
    already got a stargazer, be getting some amaryllis soon.

    The problem with my wife is that her definition of orchids are only limited to Dendrobiums
    and Vandas, if it is not one of the 2 then its not a orchid to her. hehe, but she's learning
    now we have a few phals and paphs as well. Oh ans she bought me a cattleya also hehe.
