Does anyone grow Amaryllis Stylosum?

Lincoln, NE(Zone 5b)

I received these 4 bulbs from an eBay seller. One has an baby attached. Do you think I could plant 3 of them in a 5" pot or maybe all 4? Here is a link to the only photo I found of Stylosum. http://mpeixoto.sites.uol.com.br/amaryl/stylosum.html The information there says to plant them in Soil mixed with organic material. I have been planting most of my Amaryllis in Miracle Grow Catus Mix for good drainage and they have seemed to do well. Do you think this Amaryllis would be OK in that same soil? I have some coir I could add to it. Wonder if that would be a good idea?

I would enjoy seeing other photos if you have them.

They sure are little guys... I don't think you're going to see blooms until next year or the year after. Plant them in a well drained mix.
Here's one of ours...

That is pretty. The seller said these bulbs were small, so I wasn't too surprised to see them this size. How large is your bulb?
