    FYI, that is a Fireball lily or Blood lily, Scadoxus multiflorus, Very aptly named! And Amaryllis are correctly called Hippeastrum (Hip-pee-ast-rum).

    Either way, Beautiful blooms! i have a red Hippeastrum that was given to me before my friend passed away a few years back of cancer......She had about 6 of the same one, and they hadn't flowered since her husband died about 4 years earlier, then three weeks after she had passed away, BOOM! the went crazy! every single Hippeastrum and Nerine across the road (where she lived from us) was in bloom. A very fitting send off

    You have many kinds and they are very nice, now I just saw in Vietnam Haemanthus multiflorus (Tratt.) Martym, when they mature to flowering is easy, I just spit up tubers and roots and leaves are cut, then in a cool place for about three days later replanted in pots, some time after about three months, then they will bloom.

    Orchids you see in the bowl is white Dendrobium Lowana Nioka, it's a very easy plant to flower and they bloom frequently, sweet scented flowers.

    This is a gift that I received from an older friend, a lover and her amaryllis collection varied colors, sometimes we meet and talk about orchids and how to care for them
