The bulbs from Blooming Bulbs are fine. Overall the quality of the bulbs this year have been much better than the past 2 years. I've received 20 so far from Amaryllis Bulb Company, Easy to Grow Bulbs, Fernwood Farms (ebay), and Blooming Bulbs, only 2 had a little rot on them.

Wow. Gorgeous. I never got my hippies outside this summer due to non stop rain June and July. So no striatum flowers this fall. :((
In November I will cut them down, stop watering and put them in the dark for 2 months. I don't do that to the species though. Is that correct???

Bsharf...thanks for those infos. I was thinking about purchasing a few varieties from Bloomingbulb till I read their "booboo" in GW. Gezzzz...what a mess.

Boojum...This is what I do. Stop watering now. Once they are dry, place in cool place (55F and below if possible). Wait till leaves die down and then cut. Apply Captan paste on wounds. They can be stored there until spring or until you want to bring them in to bloom. They do not need sunlight at this stage.

Zombie is nice! Here is Blushing Bride after the four blooms on the first stem opened. You can see a couple of the buds on the second stem are about to open. I noticed this looks more pink after the blooms are open for a few days. At first the base color looked more white.

This is supposed to be a "new" variety called Siren from Easy Grow Bulbs. I can find no information for it other than on their website. This is one of the oddest Amaryllis that I've ever seen. Look at the variability on the same scape! Has anyone else seen the same thing on this cultivar?

Maria: when I saw the blooms on Siren, my first impression was also that it was Joker. So Siren may or may not be something new. I always get nervous when I don't see the new cultivar listed on Plantscope or on the Hadco website. My Snow Drift from EGB should be in bloom in a few days.

Hey Bsharf! Thanks for the lead! You're right...they're almost the same. So I'll pass on this one. I have too many red miniature/small flower varieties already.

Now who ordered FLAMENCO QUEEN from White Flower Farm??? I received a partial shipment from them today and the 2 Flamenco Queen bulbs that I ordered were not included. In the bottom of their invoice states that "SAMBA" will be sent in another shipment.

Soooooooo...they are replacing a $19.95 Flamenco Queen with a Samba??? I don't think so! No wayyyyyy!!! My friend did receive his order from them and WFF has replaced his Flamenco Queen with a Samba without any notice. Bad, bad, bad!!! And besides, they have the most expensive shipping charges I have ever seen.

I also ordered Flamenco Queen, but I haven't gotten that particular order yet. I write no substitutions on every order I place. But most places substitute anyway, cause they don't want to credit you. The nurseries make up their lists based on what they think they will be getting, and then their suppliers can't get the cultivars from their growers. One positive thing this year, I really think the overall quality of the bulbs has been better so far. I'm still waiting for the order from EdenBlooms. Hope it wasn't a mistake to order from them. I saw the negitive reviews in Garden Watch after I made the order.

WFF does have very good quality bulbs like Royal Colors. Their prices are a little bit higher specially the new varieties. I just actually just wanted to try Flamenco Queen and Peach Parfait. You know, just see them with my own eyes. Then I checked their shipping charges. Gezzzzzzz... So I doubled my order and added a Shangrila to make the shipping charge worth it. And then this happens. Sighhhhhh...

Yes, the bulbs this season are very nice ones. 2009 harvest is a good one.

Amaryllis make beautiful cut flowers. Do they last about the same length of time in the vase as on the plant? Here is my Neon Rose. The first stem had 6 flowers and the other stem is just about to start opening. Sorry the photos aren't the best. I work nights and take the photo at the hospital under artificial lighting. Lady Jane and Scarlet Baby are both almost ready to open and I ran them over to the hospital today since they are easier to tranport before they start to open.

After a few days off for the holiday, I returned to work to find that Neon Rose had developed 7 flowers on the first stem. I thought there were only 6. This is the most I've had on one stem. The flowers are very interesting viewed from the top. Notice the almost red and green stripes near the bases.

In fact all of the above have me in ga ga heaven. LOL

This is the first time for me planting amaryllis. I bought several and planted them outside. One bloomed today and the others are all putting out shoots. BUT, I planted them in my bed before I put my mulch in. I planted them with about an inch of the bulb above the ground, like the instructions said. But if I add 3 inches of mulch, will that hurt them?

About the mulch. I would be worried about damp mulch causing the neck of the bulb to rot. If they were mine, I would have the neck just peeking through the mulch. This is a good reason to plant Amaryllis in a dedicated area, which can be mulched differently from the rest of the garden.

Santa Cruz on the left. "NOT Santos" on the right. Both are from Easy to Grow. I did email Kathleen (ETG) about this and she said that this is the first time they have heard about their Santos bulbs being mislabeled. So if anyone of you have a mislabeld bulb, please inform your sources even if you are content with what you got. They need to know as we do not deserve to receive another variety besides the one we paid for.

Rene...Your Clown look very similar to my Cocktail (lower left) in the above group picture. It's a beautiful one isn't it???

Sighhhhh...that tall orange one is also another mislabeld bulb. This time from Amaryllis Bulb Company. It is supposed to ne a Honeymoon. I emailed Annie about this last month. She said it looks like the Honeymoon they or she planted before and told me she'd get back at me after she talks to her supplier. Never heard from her since. These people got to be kidding me.

Sometimes, I re-order bulbs that I already have because I need them for my pollinations. It is very important for me to get the "TRUE" variety as I have a program/schedule to follow. I don't need "freebies" to add to the hippie collection which would give me more to take care of. Just give me a decent answer..."Yes we do have the right variety" OR "Sorry, we don't have it". That's all I ask and then I'll move on and look for what I need in other sources. NOT just left hanging out there.

Ahhhhh...sorry for my ranting. I did not purchase a lot of bulbs this season and am getting very disappointed with these mislabels that I received.

Exotica is a pretty one. May have to try to find it next year.

Black Pearl is blooming for me at work. I need to remember to take my camera and get a photo of it. Very large and very dark.

Here's Exotic Star. This stem only has 2 flowers. There is another stem that hasn't started to open yet. You can see we are buried in snow. About 12" over a 2 day period.

Thanks guys, I am really good at finding odd stuff at box stores (Exotica). I've got "the eye" to know when one is different.

I can't believe I bought another one today. I saw it in peak two days ago in the grocery store. I was really "good" for 2 days, but when my DBF told me he was going there, I asked hm to buy it for me. And it was still there. Three of the blooms are going by but I was in luck, there's another bud!!! Anyone know it? Is it Rosetta?

These flowers on Black Pearl have been open at least 5 days. They seem to have gotten darker with age. Only 3 on this stem and a 4th one that was malformed. The second stem looks like it will have 3 too. The centers are very near to being black.

The two in one picture are "sisters", both being papilio siblings. Party Pooper on the left and Party Animal on the right. The new cybisters are still being ID-ed correctly. The green thin petaled one is looking to be Ludwig's 98-60. And the pink wispy one is what the Taiwanese call "Shacoba" which is actually NOT it's official name. It does look very similar to Ludwig's 96-28.

Yes, that last one sure is a wispy beauty.
